    Hi
    I'd like to know if anyone as had any experience of Korsikoff or alcohol dementia?
    My Mother suffers with this illness, and was struck down with the sudden onset of such 2 and a half years ago, when she was 52 years old.
    Since this time I have struggled to get the adult mental health team to accept that her illness is NOT just because of her alcohol problem, but is infact a form of dementia.
    Because I work with ppl with dementia, I know that they are not used to the illness of dementia and basically dont have a clue about it as they refer to the older adult team for such cases.... except my mums!
    Anyway I have lots more that I could type, but I would like to hear from anyone else who may be familiar with this illness.

    Have you found any further information?

    I too am interested in finding out more about Korsikoff/alcohol-related dementia. Were you able to find any good website links? I will be sure to forward anything I find...

    Thanks,
