Greetings,

   I am a 57 year old divorced father of 2 (16 and 12) and have recently diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment (MCI).   This diagnosis occurred after several years of issues and since January of this year, had become much worse.   

I am looking for assistance to get into some of the trial or how to get a better diagnosis and am having problems navigating web sites.  Also, unfortunately my social network is almost non existent.

Thanks

Chris

You can search it on google search, maybe you will find your answer over there. Are you looking for the top university when you are a student as well? where you receive the best study materials. I found best US universities for international students 2022, you can also look at here. It's lovely to study in the United States of America. Finding a US program that has a high admission rate for international students is crucial if you're thinking about doing so. This is because there is a better chance that your application will be accepted.

Hi, I’m Missy and my husband, who is also 57, just received the same diagnosis. Unfortunately, there are not many studies out there or treatments seem to have scary side effects. I’m sorry about your diagnosis? Do you you have any help at home?

Welcome Chris!  I'm sorry for the delay.  Are you working with a dementia specialist neurologist?  You can ask about beginning a trial of Aricept or Exelon patch.  These memory medication may stabilize your memory and enable you to function better.  This can allow you time to make plans for yourself and your minor children.

 

It has happened in the past that behaviors associated with dementia cause conflict to come up in a marriage.  Many spouses consider divorce, some actually divorce.  But once it appears that dementia is in the picture, the perspectives may change.  

 

You will need some sort of support, from family or from professionals.  The children will need support, also.

 

I hope you come back to your thread.  Also, consider reaching out to a Care Consultant on the Helpline.  Ask specifically to speak with a Care Consultant.   She can help you find local resources in your area. The number is 800-272-3900.  There is no charge for this telephone consultation.

 

I hope you keep posting.  There is a lot to learn.  I have more to tell you if you are still working.

As someone with a mother with mild dimentia I highly suggest anyone who knows someone with or who has  MCI or Alz. listen to the Joe Rogan Experience podcast with guest Max Lugavere.  I learned more in 2.5 hours than I did with 60 hours of web surfing.  He breaks it down into a few things that we all know we should do correctly but don’t.  Nutrition, sleep, and exercise. Ease yourself into a ketoish diet,  exercise and get good sleep. There’s a lot of research that links poor sleep patterns and obstructive sleep apnea with things like Parkinson’s, dementia, stroke, heart attacks and a plethora of other moderate to severe problems.

 Hi Chris I Hilo’s!

Hope you’re doing better than before!

I understand what you are going through.

I saw doctor not long ago and I’m told I’m continue to decline.

I’m told I have dementia is progressing.

I’m taking medicine to slow down progression so I can get better.
