So yeah, my dad , who used to be a strong and vital man with an unshakable memory is a shadow of earth everything he used to be.
He gets confused by simple things like reading food menus or following instructions and forgets things he really should remember like routes he’s driven countless times before.
We were just on holiday together in Turkey and it was genuinely concerning. He’s lost all confidence in his ability to make decisions and know what’s up and is now looking to everybody else to tell him what to do and when.
The whole family can see he’s in decline and while drs don’t think it’s anything too serious, they agree he’s declining too.
I’m worried he’s got early onset dementia, but even if he hasn’t something needs to be done, and fast.
So what I’m asking is, what can we do to reverse or at least slow this down?
What foods should he be eating for maximum cognitive function?
What foods shouldn’t he be eating for maximum cognitive function?
How about supplements?
What about exercises?
We’re willing to try anything so any advice you can give me would be massively appreciated.
Thanks for your time.
