Hello All, I was wondering if in your experience AD patients begin to lose their ability to speak and if so, at what stage of the disease this happens. My mum who is in moderate stage has begun speaking in a way that is difficult to understand and I have to ask her to repeat what she says. The words come out unrecognisable sometimes, her voice is different. Is this something you have experienced, and if so does this lead to total loss of the ability to speak? Many thanks for your input. This journey brings new and horrible challenges every day.
