In the past couple of years I’ve been reading a lot about dementia since my MIL has been diagnosed with mixed dementia and we’re her remote caregivers.
One of the female members in my senior center’s singing group is exhibiting some of the early signs of dementia that we wish we had recognized years ago with MIL so the family could have made plans.
I don’t know this member well enough and I wonder if I should somehow suggest that her family should have her evaluated with minicog test.
I read somewhere that 1/3 of the seniors will eventually have dementia. It might happen to anyone. I was thinking this is going to happen to the many members in the senior center, and if we recognize the early signs, if we should bring it up, or how should we bring it up?
