    Hi, I am new to this site. My name is Debbie and my husband was officially diagnosed with vascular dementia last year but we started noticing the symptoms several years ago.

    He is 70 years old and I am soon to be 44. I must admit this is by far the hardest thing I have ever done and there are days when I'm not sure I can do it. We live about 60 miles East of Dallas, Texas.

    Welcome easttexas. We all wonder that but try not to dwell on it. We just take one day at a time, one crisis at a time. I am sorry you are going through this at a young age. I was 55 when this started and I felt that was young but many others have to deal with it too.

    Hi easttexas, Welcome to the site. I was 59 when my husband (who is 19 years my senior) was diagnosed with Alz. I did not think I could do it either, but I did. He died in March, ten years after diagnosis. This website (which I did not find until 2014) was an enormous help, both with practical and moral support. I hope you will get the same benefit.

    Hello easttexas from Hobbs,NM. Two years ago we lived south of Corsicana. So, your almost from our home. Being a caregiver for a dementia person has no age limits. My Wife has AD but my mother had the vascular dementia. neither is easy. But, the spouse angle is much, much harder.

    Thanks for the warm welcome. I spent a good part of yesterday just reading past posts that were very informative. I am very glad that I stumbled upon this website while doing more research on vascular dementia. It's nice to have a place to go where people actually understand what it is that you are going through.
