My partner died last March. He had vascular dementia. At the end he went down hill fast & died in hospital after being there for a week. My ex husband has vascular dementia & copd. He has been in hospital for 5 weeks & has been sent back to his home to die. The doctor said he has about 2 weeks left. He is being looked after by his son 24/7 & carers are going in 4 times a day. He is still eating & drinking a little & is on antibiotics for a chest infection. He is speaking clearly & understanding things. Our son says its as though his dementia has gone. Has anyone had any experience of this happening?
