I have to find a doctor for my Mom as her GP retired. She currently only has a Heart Specialist but not a Neurologist. I understand a Gerontologist covers problems related to the elderly but I do not know if they replace a GP or if they are in addition to a GP and what do they actually cover as far as a patients needs.
Mom has moderate dementia, is 84, and her first memory problems were noticed around 2005 by my father. My daughter and I live with my mother and I am her caregiver and hold POA. Her dementia is getting worse as well as anger issues. I am lost trying to figure out who to go to for help.
