My 83 yr old mother suffered a fall almost a year ago. Though she has recovered well physically, her mental abilities have not. CT at time of accident showed no sign of stroke. She is able to take care of herself very well, and is even driving short distances, but yet her memory and ability to handle her business affairs has not improved. Short term memory is poor. She also is unable to handle her meds, and a nurse comes in weekly for that. My question is...would it be reasonable to ask her physician for neurological testing to see just what we are dealing with? Or is this really of no value?
Thanks, and my heart goes out to each of you as I follow this forum.
