batb37, only a doctor will know based on medical tests. Hope she agrees to see her doctor, or whenever her next visit is scheduled may be a good time to join her or call ahead to speak with the doctor or nurse.

We noticed this in my Mother a while ago and asked her to please go to the doctor. She was aware that she was having trouble finding words, or using the wrong words, as well as difficulty with some daily tasks. Her doctor saw the difficulties she was having and referred us to a neurologist, who diagnosed her with Primary Progressive Aphasia (PPA). This sign of language diffuculty could be one of many associated with several types of dementia, so you are really better off taking her to a doctor or a neurologist to get a better idea of what type of a problem you are dealing with.
