Hi Robin and Fran. You have come to the right place for support and great information. You might want to pick up Dr. Steven Gundry's book "The Plant Paradox" and get familiar with his thoughts on diet. I know there is a lot to process and I congratulate you for reaching out to learn more. There is a wiki page at the top right of the page (with 3 dots) that will lead you to more answers to questions you will have. Safe travels home.
Best, Sandyk

Fran/Robin beat it wrote:We are new to this whole situation. I am Robin (caregiver) and my wife Fran was diagnosed with ‘early onset dementia’ in the summer of 2016. I heard about Dr. Bredesen’s book and bought a copy. Heavy slogging. We have not had any testing done and so I guess that is where we will start when we return to Ottawa, Ontario next week. The other priority is to find a Doctor/coach to work with us. I’ll be starting that process at the geriatric clinic in Ottawa. Our other priority will be the diet change. This is a daunting voyage that all of you have been on and that we are just starting.

Hi, Robin and Fran. You probably by now are back in Ottawa, beginning your search for a doctor and/or coach to work with. I hope that is going well. You mentioned a diet change also. There are many threads on the site about diet, and if you have questions, feel free to post. The 'change' you are seeking can seem daunting, but is made less so by friends assisting. We on the site would be happy to try to assist. :-) Looking forward to hearing more about your progress!
