Hi all! My mom has been through quite a bit over the past few weeks. Long story short after a significant fall, she ended up back in the hospital after a few days of lethargy and diarrhea. She had been previously diagnosed with a mild cognitive impairment a few years ago. But after being in the hospital for what ended up being pneumonia, the Dr. diagnosed her with dementia. What’s the connection? I’m not sure how advanced the dementia is or what to expect from here. I live out of state from where my parent live and am curious how this diagnosis is reached. Any insight is appreciated. Thanks!!!
