In brief: What is question?

This sounds like a tragic complication of an ischemic (bloot clotting stroke) but there is no specific question here, rather a list of symptoms.
Please rephrase into a specific question and I am sure we can help...

There can be several causes in this case. Lewy Body dementia is one possibiltiy, but the more likely truth is that once you injure or insult an already fragile brain (as is what happened here with the stroke), the tenuous threat by which the brain was holding on breaks, and the brain rapidly "decompensates", or gets very sick very quickly. I wish you the best in this very difficult time

In brief: Several choices

Fractures of bones can cause showers of fatty particles traveling to brain (fat emboli) resulting in multiple, simultaneous small strokes bring on cognitive decline.
Sometimes people on the verge of clinical alzheimers (or other dementias) become rapidly symptomatic after such a major trauma absent any direct brain injury. Have neurology consult done.
