Welcome to Dementia Talking Point @flurry

My dad was very up and down too. Sometimes it was something simple like being hungry or dehydrated. I often found that giving him a drink helped. He also wanted to go home when he’d had enough of us...usually about 3hrs in his case.

Now that you’ve found us I hope you’ll continue to post. There’s a wealth of experience of dementia here.
