Dementia: Diagnosis Needed

Posted at 4 am:


Image result for Type of Dementia Picture


Maureen needs to be seen by her GP this morning after another dreadful night.

She had just laid down on the sofa after ‘being on a boat’ for the last five hours.

She is awake now: looking for her mum and frightened about being left on her own

I am asking the GP’s advice on how to manage her current presentation.

I am also formally requesting a review of her diagnosis .

Is her dementia predominantly vascular, Alzheimer’s or something else?

A Best Interest Meeting in a month’s time is no help to me in the middle of the night.

We also both need to know if our coughs and colds are anything more sinister!
