How often do you get evaluations on dementia for your loved one?
Most of mom's care has been handled by her primary doctor. She's been evaluated by a geriatric nurse and neurologist, but not in the last two years. She's not taking any medication for the dementia but she does take anxiety and depression meds managed by the primary doctor. Do you regularly take your loved one back to the neurologist to evaluate how the disease is progressing? She hates going to see him because she feels like he's testing her and she'll look stupid. He's really very nice and has a great staff,
