I read her TP'ers posts on here and see that their respective sufferers seem to have more than 'just' the dementia issues. E.g. diabetes, stroke,epilepsy etc etc. My husband is as healthy as an ox, with only the dementia to struggle with. Is this common, or do these other conditions come as the dementia progresses. He is in care now due to violence issues, but I wonder what the prognosis is. The medical staff don't seem to know how long he will be healthy, although he does shuffle now instead of the confident gait he used to have.
