How can I find a doctor that is right for my 98-year-old grandmother with Alzheimer's?
Grandmas 98 and her regular Doctor is no help with her alzheimers. He says she has senile dementia and will not even say she has alzheimers. I know its the same thing! We called him over and over for help and he just keeps saying she's healthy. The woman is a diabetics and has blood pressure problems. That he said she can eat whatever she wants. She has lived with me for over a year and she can not eat whatever she wants because it makes her pressure and sugar go through the roof! She is now up all night and all he would do is give her adivan and all that did was my her more off balance then she is (she uses a walker and is still not very stable) and she ended up falling. So we stopped giving her that. I have POA for her medical and I want to take her to a different dr. that deals with alzheimers. We live in michigan, chesterfield township, 48051 She is also starting to lose a lot of weight and he seems not concerned. Would like someone that speaks good english and who could be a better help to her and myself.
