It certainly is possible. I don't know if she can have both Parkinson's and Alzheimer's, but I guess it's possible. As time passes, they will probably be able to tell better what she really has.

You have a hard road ahead of you. What kind of relationship do you have with her? As a caregiver, you will need lots of compassion and lots of self-preservation and a real sense of humor.

Is the neurologist a specialist in geriatrics? That would be a big help to you to have that kind of expertise.
