My spouse was diagnosed with vascular dementia in 2016 after MRI and PET scans. Although, the signs and symptoms began as early as 2009. Im concerned if anyone has had to deal with caring for someone this young who is now falling and sleeping ALOT (12-15 hours a day). He also has diabetic neuropathy and he picks at his hands until they are cracked and bleeding. He has also become more "withdrawn" by sitting outside in the garage alone listening to music. I have also started noticing him mumbling when he speaks, thinking I just didn't hear him, but when asked to repeat himself he speaks clearly .I don't know that I am asking any specific questions, but rather trying to determine if these are common traits for someone with vascular dementia w/ history of mini strokes (4), high BP, high Cholesterol, Diabetes, Smoking.
