She loses her thoughts mid sentence. Other times she cannot find the words or substitutes words. Understanding what people are saying takes more time. I have seen some helpful ideas for communicating with dementia patients, but are there therapies for the person with dementia that can help with these issues? She has resisted going to a neurologist (sometimes even the primary doctor) as she doesn't want to be "found out" or labeled as having dementia. However, she has agreed to go to a neurologist to see if he can help her with her language. I feel like I'm tricking her to go along with this but think a more specialized diagnosis than the general dementia given by the primary doctor may help somehow. She is generally against medication and currently takes none at the age of 80. Anyone have advice for this situation?
