Hi All, Thought I should introduce myself. I care for Dad who is 89 and had various health issues including a stroke back in 2009. His memory is hardly ever tested as he does so little but the most noticeable decline has been in the TV remote control. He has now reached the stage where he presses buttons randomly , various boxes pop up on display and settings go all over the place and he tells me it isn't working. I have noticed this is worst in the evening so is this sundowning? I can spend ages with him just explaining how to go from BBC1 to BBC2. I can say it in 10 differnt simple ways and he still doesn't get it. He has had the GP referral to memory clinic who did a home visit and he failed the first stage of the test so a memory nurse did another home visit and carried out the ACE test where he scored 65 out of 100. I believe anything lower than 82 points towards dementia. I am awaiting contact from a consultant to appear with a diagnosis. Not sure if it will be alzheimers or vascular dementia. Thought it would be useful to chat in a dementia forum.
