Hi, I'm new to this group. My dad has been diagnosed with amnestic dementia by his neurologist. lately, my mom tells me he has mornings when he's tired and not in the mood to do anything and a few hours later he's energized, and calls people one after another who he would not normally call (old friends, relatives, etc)and chats for some time. My mother thinks this is great (compared to the lethargy in the a.m.) but I see it as somewhat manic. Does anyone else have this experience with a dementia patient? to complicate matters, they live in Fla and I'm in NY, so I have not seen this behavior firsthand and don't know what to make of it. Thanks for any input!!
