: To anyone with answers:
: A dear friend suffered a stroke 9 months ago. His long-term memory is remarkably good with some exceptions: he forgets the death of his mother which happened 25 years ago; and he is unable to recall the date, the year and his address. He was very bright and always loved a challenge. I believe he may still.
: Is it fair to him to set up daily goals for him, practice recalling the date, have daily conversations about the news, etc? I get the feeling that stimulating his mind will help. Am I wrong? I certainly don't want to make things worse for him. Also, he frequently cries and gets angry with himself for his inability to control his emotions.
: Please respond to me in an email as I am new here and may have difficulty relocating this message board! Thanks in advance to anyone willing to offer practical advice and specific strategies.
it's a little hard to email you when the address is not posted or the message is no longer available but i've tried.Larry
