Visited Mom's dr. yesterday and think some discretion needs to be used.
I talked to the dr. about my mother's current issues and he briefly checked her (about 1 minute) and said "dementia" but didn't address this. I have recognized the signs for quite a while so that's no surprise, but she heard him. I am now dealing with the fall-out of how awful she feels about this.
I think he should've talked to me privately so as not to upset her needlessly.
Anyone have any suggestions so this doesn't happen in the future.
