Dementia patient candidate for LVAD?Sun, 10/06/2019 - 2:32PM
My husband has end stage heart failure and has the option to have an LVAD. As his caregiver, I am trying to find information on how well a person diagnosed with mild Alzheimers/dementia would be able to function with an LVAD, especially as his cognitive skills declined. We have talked about what we can only imagine a person with cognitive impairment might experience. Does anyone have any experience as a patient or caregiver with this issue?
