anyone heard of galloping dementia - Carers UK Forum

anyone heard of galloping dementia

For issues specific to caring for someone with dementia.
i have just heard that the specialist said my grandmother has galloping dementia i have been searching the net all night and not come up with anything

if anyone knows if this is another name or description of something else could you please tell me

or is it just describing the speed that it is progressing short term memory has now completely gone she is going back to early adult hood and has bad hallucinations and is up and down most of the night
Hi Gizmo,

If you use google,there are quite a few references to galloping dementia.Mostly it seems to be like you already said,the speed of how it progresses.

Best thing would be to ask the specialist for a full explanation of your grandmothers condition.
