My mom was recently diagnosed with Dementia due to Alzheimer's . She is on 10mg of Aricept that she tolerates well. The Neurologist made it clear that she has the disease and all the scans,MRI's and cognitive testing confirms. Her PCP gave her the new Montreal Cognitive test and she scored in the "severe" range. Ok,here's the question....most days she is as normal as can be. Remembers things from yesterday,last week,etc. Next day...confusion,repeating things,making up stories and can't remember what she ate last night. Things that I give her or places that I take her become,"I've never had that before or been here before"
What the heck is going on!!! Help....am I the one with Dementia? I feel like I'm in a bad dream some days and will wake up and none of this ever happened!! Any advice?
