My partner had his first visit from local memory clinic nurse practitioner, three years after first diagnosis ( she was rightly appalled we had not received a visit until now) .... There is little she can do other than prescribe Donepezil but on looking it up on the Internet, it looks very powerful, unpleasant and not really a long term help. We are thinking is it better just live life and face what comes as the disease ( Cerebral Amalaoid Angiopathy is the cause of dementia plus maybe some Alzheimers pathology) progresses? There is already so much to deal with, without the terrible side effects. Any positive experiences out there? I have no one to share all this with .... Glad of having a place here to ask. Feeling like many here ... Both of us, isolated with coming to terms with the affects of dementia.
