I live in the boston area. My mom lives in St. Pete fla, more than 15 years ago she had a couple of Tia's that caused some vision issues but nothing major. After some testing in early 2003 she was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. But she never really showed the type of symptoms associated with that and never really has, about 3-4 years after that she her diagnosis was amended to vascular dementia. About 4-5 years ago she started getting bouts of vision problems, unsteadiness on her feet and then more recently throwing up. She's in her mid 70s now. Everytime she goes to a dr down there they basically send her home. My father is Ill equipped to deal with it and has recently sent her to hospice in Clearwater. I have been lobbying for her to get out of that area come here and see someone at the mgh or Brigham & Womens - but they don't think their insurance will cover out of state. Not sure what else to do. Anyone?
