My father is in his early 60s and has what I am assuming are TIA many times over his life. He has seen doctors but they have never been able to tell him anything so he refuses to see anymore doctors. Lately I have been noticing personality changes and he seems deppressed. He used to be a very indepent person but now he just goes along with whatever his wife tells him to do. His mother had dementia so there is a family history.
My question is, If he has had strokes could this lead to slight dementia? He is not forgetting himself or anything like that but his personality seems flat.
