Hi, Dr. Stan here to help you today.

I believe you are asking about someone else. You are describing the symptoms of dementia, Alzheimer type. Your description is also of someone who may have had a stroke.

What medications have been prescribed?

Where is the person you describe living, a rehab facility?, nursing home?
