My Mom has been with me for 2 years and seems better than when she came. I could be wrong but she seems more alert, she still needs assistance but she bathes herself, and keeps busy around the house. She does have short term memory issues but sometimes I feel like she has been misdiagnosed, is this normal ? I just don't see a lot of the things that I hear.
So I'm not sure what you mean exactly with your mom, but she may be like mine. No short-term memory and some cognitive decline, but definitely not Alzheimers.
