We went to my mom's GP. He advised her that she has moderate Dementia/Alzheimer's. After the appointment, Mom told me she wants a referral to a specialist. I hoped that she would forget about further diagnosis, as I can only see this as being upsetting to her. Every time I speak to her on the phone, she asks for a specialist so she knows what is wrong with her, and what to expect. I have to respect her wishes, so have asked her PCP to refer her to a specialist. Has anyone had this experience, and how did you handle it? She accepts Short Term Memory Loss, but that is all she can handle for now.
