We just received news that my 57 year old mom has dementia. They are not able to narrow down which one (Posterior Cortical Atrophy, Atypical Alzheimer's or FTD-this is what they think). I wanted to reach out to see if anyone had any advice or anything that have done that has helped. I have read about their diets and things like that. Just looking for some help, hope, anything to grasp for her and my family. I have two young kids that she seems every week and are very close with. Appreciate and help and insights

Stephanie:  I recommend that you post on the caregivers board and be specific about what you are asking for help with.  Also check out Solutions in the tabs above.

There are a number of good books about the subject. Start with The 36 Hour Day. You'll learn a lot.
