My mother is 83 and borderline dementia. Her immediate memory seems to be going fast now. She's been tested and it isn't necessarily Alzheimer's. I am scared to start her! She has always been sensitive to meds. It is such a daunting decision as I look at her and she seems fine - you can't SEE what is happening inside yet by NOT giving her the meds and a chance I'm holding back her potential memory improvement. I feel like if something negative happens I will be destroyed, yet, the person I knew my whole life is slowly leaving anyway. It is so sad.
