    My partner has been having hemodialysis for seven months. Next week we start training for PD, and two weeks later, start PD at home. Because he has dementia, we are worried about doing nighttime PD, so are going to train for manual daytime four half hour sessions per day. Your thoughts about this. He's 84, besides dialysis and dementia, has Parkinsons and rheumatoid arthritis, and is not (never was) a gentle soul--just multi-talented and productive. Any suggestions you have would be appreciated. Thanks. (I'm 85, but healthy, and we have a Nanny (58 year old Mexican woman who has lived with us 20 years) and may hire a daytime helper. Thanks, Jim
