Recently moved back in with my 60 some year old mother who is close to retiring and wanting to move to Florida. My husband and I moved in to help her achieve her dream, but we have noticed small things we think may be attributed to beginning stages of dementia. Like we will go over bills and I'll tell her ok I'll give you x amount of money a week, but x per month and she will agree, then she comes back and acting like the conversation never happened. Or another time she let us borrow some money for our trip since we were in a tight spot and needed to leave in a certain time frame, and would be paying far more then the monthly bill...but the amount we discussed changed by x amount and she says that she never said that amount, or it'll be other small things where we agreed on something and she comes back and says it never happened, then gets angry when I try to tell her it didn't happen that way.
Could this be dementia or random memory flubs. It doesn't happen all the time, just maybe once every month or so something like this may spring up. I just need to know if it is me jumping to conclusions or if something is wrong.
And before anyone points out..no she won't go to the doctor to check, I tried that with her hearing once and she yelled at me saying it was something wrong with me, not her. lol
