Hi
My husband has recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer's. On Galantamene Any experiences of helpfulness with this?
I am feeling quite fearful of future
At times I wonder if he really has it as seems so normal its just being unable to communicate and unable to find right word. Plus understanding of common words.

Prescribed at MDT meeting by Consultant after memory clinic appointment. Sorry what is PWD?

PWD = Person with Dementia

Shocking, upsetting and ............ @BonzoCuss , you will become accustomed to the terminology.

On this forum It's about sharing how we care for our beloved PWD.
You can scream, shout and vent how horrible and unfair life is for a person with dementia AND for the carer of a pwd.
We all do xx
