Mom is 87 and she fell and result was a dislocated shoulder and a cut above her right eye. ER Doc tired twice to place her shoulder and was unable to due to many mussel spasm. She was sent back to the Nursing Home with a sling and Hydrocodone prn for pain. For 3 nights she screamed out with pain, which I didn t know until Mom s roommate told me of this. I made some waves, then Mom was placed on IM MS and Geodon IM. Mom still hollered out and also talked out needing help from her brother and sisters. Moms meds have been change about every 3 days. Mom continues to holler out and when she is 1 -1 she is her normal self. Could she had a brain injury? Is she doing this as not to be alone? Or is her dementia changed in to full blown Alzheimer s? It is so hard to see Moms dementia change from a happy go lightly person a slit personality. Thanks

I am biopolar schizoaffective, late onset around 58 years old. I asked my psychiatrist if I have dementia. My mom has Alzheimer s and she is 95. She told me that I can get a series of tests for dementia. I worked in the biotech industry for companies, such as, Genentech, Amgen and Bayer in Berkeley to name a few. You can be as specific and scientific as you think appropriate. Dennis Tajiri

My wife was never fully diagnosed with Alzheimer s but the consensus appeared to be the cause of her declining memory problems. This started about 5 years ago with 2 strokes affecting her left brain. There appeared to be little difference between left and right body strength and did not seem to suffer and typical body reactions. She quickly learned how to walk, eat, dress but it took much longer to recover memory and speak. Two years ago I retired to take care of her full time. In the last few weeks, she has had very rapid physical decline. She used to dance with me almost every day, could walk unassisted and mostly could dress, go to the bathroom by herself, brush her own teeth and feed herself. Now she cannot do anything at all without assistance. Her joints are very stiff and she cannot stand, walk or get in and out of bed by herself. She is also almost constantly shaking her hands and arms, sometimes quite violently. Is this a clear symptom or dementia with Lewy? Is there any correlation to stage 7 Alzheimer s. Beginning, middle of late stage 7?
