This is an administrative question, I think. I am looking for an article about a dementia patient who scored very high on a memory test given at the neurologist ‘s office yet continued to show symptoms of dementia.
This just happened yesterday with my sister.
She has a “boyfriend” from her Bible study group (he is a retired pastor to seniors) and thinks she is getting married this summer even though he has not proposed. We have not even formally met him yet. I go to a different church.. Yesterday she scored very high on the memory test (even the neurologist was surprised). Ideally, it would be so good to just let her get married, have my sister change my POA (medical and financial) to her new husband, but I see obstacles ahead. I see ethical and moral questions about not revealing her true condition. My dear husband wants this “marriage” to happen, but I can’t hide the truth.
Anyone have thoughts or ideas on this?
