My cousin fell down a flight of stairs at approx age 64. She broke her leg and as that was healing she started to get signs of dementia. She is now 76 and can speak very little (some surpising spurts) She deteriated quickly and is now being cared for now by her daughter. My question is: Do you think that her fall triggered something that caused her quick deteriation/dementia?
