Re: Vascular Dementia
My mother is in the same situation as your brother, but she is 79 years old. She is at this time in hospice, as they weren't sure why she was declining so quickly. The hospice doc today said it may be vascular dementia, as she fits the criteria for this. She has been on lithium for her bipolar disorder for more than 20 years and since she has had her recent downslide, has not had it for over a week and has virtually no lithium levels right now. She has been so calm and nice and I am just waiting for the big boom. Now my question, has your brother remained on his bipolar meds the whole time or is he off and still acting like a 10 year old? It is much easier deal with a happy 10 year old than a miserable 79 year old. Please let me know what your experience has been.
