How do I get mom to accept the fact that she needs to go to the doctor for a memory assessment?
My 81-year old mother has been experiencing declining short-term memory loss over the past several years. She's been to a geriatrics physician who gave her a memory test, and she's advised my mom to go for a more thorough memory assessment. My mom is refusing to acknowledge there is any problem with her memory. Several of her friends have shown concern about it to her in the past, and she's gotten angry and offended. How do I get her to go for this memory assessment if she's unwilling? I can't drag her to the doctor's office.
