How do you deal with memory loss??? He still works and makes major decisions, but sometimes he forgets he has said them and it really hurts.

    I really don’t. I’m trying but when I forgot my granddaughter’s name last week. It broke my heart. I’m forgetting more and more.
    I have been diagnosed with PD and other tremors. I guess I need to write all of my grandchildren’s name down

    Thanks for posting your question, @llsites. I’m so sorry to hear about the memory loss he (your husband?) is experiencing. I’m sure it’s really hard for both of you to go through. Some have found that keeping the brain “active” with crosswords, puzzles, etc., have helped promote a healthy brain. There are also medication options, however, since we are unable to provide any medical advice, we recommend speaking with his doctor to determine what treatment options are available. I hope this helps! – Chris, ParkinsonsDisease.net Team Member

    Thanks Chris,
    Kevin is on about 40 pills a day some which are Vitimans. We looked into the Brain Surgery and because of his fall in ’09 and the loss of memory already not a candidate. Just hoping to find someone that understands this lose and how I can deal with the outcomes when what he says or promise that affects our everyday life. He’s still is running a business and it affects this also….makes for a lot of hurt feelings and most don’t understand.
