Thank you everyone for such a warm welcome to this site - I am sure it is going to help- my wife goes to bed every night at 9 so the rest of the evening is quite long especially as I have had to make our sitting room into a bedroom for her so I retire to the kitchen and me and the cat contemplate our exciting social life together in dubious silence . Truth be known I am fairly worn out by the end of the day but this has given me a new raison d'être ( spelling?) I am afraid I shall be asking lots of questions because I can't seem to get much idea from the professionals . For example my wife apart from the falls and vertical gaze palsy seems to be accelerating down the dementia path coupled with obsessive compulsive behaviour increased short term memory loss and some quite difficult to deal with personality traits along with cognitive impairment - it all seems to have come at once and is escalating. Is this how it goes ? Does it slow down or just keep going on downhill ? I would welcome other people's experiences .Time for me and the cat to retire to bed and I look forward to your inputs .Thanks Georgpa
