carruthers209 posted a topic in Caregivers Forumhttp://www.apdaparkinson.org/cognitive-changes-in-parkinsons/ Thanks again to Kathrynne Holden from Chew on This-which is becoming my daily go-to resource for Parkinson's knowledge-for the article on "Cognitive Changes in Parkinson's." It's really good to read through this article because it clearly lays out where logical thinking, processing and memory are just not happening-well, at least not how we are used to living our lives. I've noticed my husband's declining cognitive functioning. He's been having trouble retrieving naming words (nouns) but now it's progressing to where he's slower at logical thinking, gets distracted very easily, forgetful, etc. We just went on vacation and he forgot to bring his remote for his DBS battery and he walked through the airport security screening machine-great! Fortunately we got through the vacation without any "events." I need to be more on the ball with this and aware that I can no longer expect him to remember important things. He's mentioned he wants me to be aware that I will need to watch his checking account in the "future." Forewarned is forearmed I guess.
