Hello. Writing this in hope that someone can help me. My husband has vascular dementia, with his scan showing particular damage to the frontal lobe. He was diagnosed when he was 64, but I had been telling nurses etc that there was a problem for at least two years previous to this. He is now 66. His eating and drinking is very poor..he has already had three stays in hospital due to infections and dehydration. I am now logging every thing he eats and drinks...which is very little. I would estimate that over the last week or so he gets about a pint of fluid (including Ensure)and VERY little food each day. Is this what I should expect this early in the illness? My worry is that with such a small intake of fluid he will quickly end up back in hospital and I am very aware that each illness seems to accelerate the dementia. I am new to the forum and would appreciate any views on this. Thank you.
