Hi I am s female age 72.. I have had vascular dementia for four years...I did live on my own in my own property....the changes in my life have been... (a)....I sold my property and helped my daughter & son-in-law by a larger house (they have two sons ..one at school and one at Uni.) But me living with the family has created no problems at all. (B). If there has been any significant changes ...its because I dont drive anymore ..but I can't say that I miss that. When I drove it was because of necessity rather than choice. (C). I use my Kindle regularly to keep up to date with family and friends. So my life is good. You just have to be positive .
