CBD and thought process breakdown

Postby HelpingDad » Mon Feb 06, 2017 1:50 pm

I've been noticing something odd with dad for the past couple of weeks. He has brief episodes where he "forgets" what he should do next. Some examples are:

1) not knowing what to do when putting his dentures in, something he has done for years.

2) having to be reminded to bend his legs so I can move him from wheelchair to wherever.

3) when sat on the toilet not knowing what to do next

These episodes are brief and he remembers what needs done right away if told. His psychologist is coming to see him soon and I have notes on all this to share with her. I am just concerned I may be witnessing the beginning of some dementia. Dad did tell me the other day, after my prodding, he has several episodes a day where is doesn't know what he should be doing, even if he is doing basically nothing.

This could either be memory loss, ideomotor apraxia, or slowed thinking.
