I voted for stage 6 but in reality my granda is a lot worse than stage 6 but not as bad as stage 7 but then again the stages are just guidelines.
I think you have picked up on a good point and many would agree. Many have commented on this thread how stages overlap - mobility can go at different stages, mediciation can affect stages. I would only use it as a guide and frankly my father seems to have had about 20 stages. So I think your statement is a good reminder.you can have symptoms across several 'stages' all at the same time
The above describes my husband to at `T`. The seven stages overlap too much and can be very confusing, but in our case, there is nothing confusing about the above.The Middle Stages - The Battle
The middle stages of AD is best described as when the disease has now progressed to a point where the patient is clearly battling it. They are aware that they are having problems and doing everything that they can to survive. Life is a constant battle involving frustration, mishaps, and episodes of upset. The question one may now be asking is ñwho is winning ¿ the person with AD or the disease?
Thankyou Connie - I won't "go on" here as it would go "off thread" - but while I'm sure TP will bring comfort & information - the thing I need, & miss, most is communication (& I'm absolutely sure from browsing round here that communication is at the heart of TP)Thank you for sharing your story, and giving us some background information on you and your dear husband. For me, very interesting reading, as no too stories are ever alike.
I do hope that you will find TP a source of comfort and information. Welcome.
