My mother has vascular dementia and is aged 76. She was diagnosed when she was 70. Just before Christmas she was diagnosed with lung cancer. She was a heavy smoker for many years. I do not know anyone who has cancer and dementia. There must be others out there. It is difficult because she does not know this and if she did it could set off a major TIAs and she would forget anycase. I am liaising with medical staff etc as next of kin and getting information direct which is good, but it is not easy. They have told me it is terminal and they cannot treat the cancer because she is so frail and I agree. All the information you are given is for treatment etc but nothing about cancer and dementia. Can anyone help?
