Post ALS and Dementia

Hi this is my first time to post something. My husband was diagnosed with dementia last June and then next month another blow with ALS.
I feel it's going to be a hard road because he won't be able to tell me things like what's happening to him and how he feels. I feel sometimes I will have to be a detective to what's going on with him.
Any advice from someone who's going through the same things?

Hello Joanne,

Welcome to the NeuroTalk Support Groups.

I'm very sorry to read about your husband's diagnoses.

As this particular forum is not always very busy, I just wanted to let you know that there is also a
Dementia sub forum in the Alzheimer's forum and a Caregiver's Support Forum

take care there.
