@hopeful33250 …Thank you for your kind words. Did try speech therapy when in early stage, but to no avail. He tried so hard but the therapist thought it was too stressful for him. And he is worse as I have said. Also has what doc called essential tremor which has also gotten worse and his balance is off. Needs assistance but hates to be followed he can still walk after getting help up from chair.

My husband also tried speech therapy for a short time. I can’t say it was very helpful but at least we tried. He also can no longer use utensils and eats with his fingers . That does limit some of the food choices in the care facility. When I’m there at mealtime I take a washcloth to clean him up. I also clip his nails as it’s a process. He mumbles and tries so hard to speak at times. It breaks my heart. Peace and Gods blessings !
