Vascular Damentia


New member
Jun 28, 2022
My wife has been diagnosed with vascular Damentia, it showed up about May last year with phobia and at the time I did not realize it was Damentia.
By Dec driving skills were affected.
Now constant supervision is required.
I was informed by psychiatrist that deteriorating is in steps not slow and gradually. It's a steep learning curve but managing well.

Welcome to the forum @TrevWen.

I’m sorry to read about your wife’s diagnosis. It’s good that you have found this forum as I know you will get lots of understanding and help here.

You may want to start your own thread in the I Have A Partner With Dementia area of the forum.

In the meantime you might find this fact sheet useful.
