My mom has kindly refused formal testing in the past. Yesterday she cooperated and participated in the Mini Mental State Examination test with her doctor. I knew we were probably heading towards severe dementia but was not expecting her to score a 2! I'm struggling with how - and what - to tell her siblings and friends. I've been keeping them updated on her current status, but the doctors wouldn't provide me any guidance on what to expect - and possibly when. I understand each patient is different...but a score of 2! I just need some kind of guidance.
