My 61 year old mother was diagnosed with dementia in the fall by 2 different doctors. She was unable to live on her own and was moved to a memory care unit. Due to hearing voices and acting on them her doctor ordered a brain scan and then ruled out dementia and changed her diagnosis to schizophrenia. She has a normal life expectancy and her doctor is confident that he can get her back to living a normal life with proper treatment. Has anyone had a somewhat similar experience with a changed diagnosis? What can we expect now?
