My father is 72 and has declined immensely in the last two years from PPA. For years the doctors thought he had Parkinsons disease and have been treating him for that. But we have come to find that he In fact has PPA. When he talks he whispers but he thinks he is speaking normally. The biggest problem is stability. He can barely walk and navigate. He falls multiple times a day. My mother who is 62 is still working full time and taking care of my father is also a full time job. I am the oldest of their children and i have two younger sisters. We no longer live at home and we all have families of our own. So we all take turns caring for him because he can no longer be left alone. It is true he acts like a child and it is so sad watching your father deteriorate right in front of your eyes. The reason I am writing this is if there are any programs we as a family could go to or look up on the Internet to help him with this horrible disease. It is new to us and we want to make the last years of his life the best we can. Thank you for reading and taking the time to answer me if anyone can. Thank you.
