Wife was diagnosed with a CT scan. Hers is FTD with aphasia. And getting worse.
I was told the type of test would depend on her scores from the tests like drawing the clock.

You can take Mom to a neurologist and he will evaluate Mom and do what testing he feels necessary. There is one called an EEG that tests the brain waves.

Blood tests really don't show dementia; you generally need a full cognitive workup. You also need to rule out a lot of metabolic stuff such as hydrocephalus, sodium imbalance and UTIs. Tell us more and we can give you better information.
