- Loved one DX
Hi. I can no longer find the forum that speaks to the issue of losing mental capacity as ALS progresses. When I first read it I was totally surprised for in all the reading I have done, it does not state this. Is losing your mental capacity common? Any information would be greatly appreciated. He is 78 (totally alert, brilliant and lovable :>) was diagnosed 2 yrs ago and his now dependent on his wheel chair when outside of his condo and is beginning to have eat/swallowing issues.
