She is 79 years old and is DEFINITELY showing signs of Dementia/Early Alzheimer's. She often forgets conversations, places she has gone, bank transactions she has made, etc. We are trying to step in to help, as she was never married nor had any children. We are her next of kin. We legally have no right to her medical records, yet we do have a POA and a HCP. However, she refuses for us to take her to the doctor, because we are hoping to get a mental status check on her.
