Mom is 92 with moderate Alzheimer's (we think) - but def dementia (vascular).
She cannot make good decisions for herself anymore.
She brushes her teeth with hand lotion if we are not watching her... so...
She has a DNR in place, and I am her POA.
She (or I) have been advised to take her to a kidney specialist, as her kidney levels came back a little high which means they are working too hard.
Mom says she feels fine and doesn't want to go.
Again, she IS 92, and with moderate dementia, the future ain't looking too bright anyway... but should I try to trick her into see the specialist (i.e. get her in the car and "stop in" to see him?) I feel like I'm in a Catch-22.
