So my mother who has, for 9 years, thought to have dementia. She for 9 years has had little decay in memory loss. It is very strange to me as I have been told she wont know who I am within months and its been years! She seems better and maybe her actions and thought process is based off of years of drinking alcohol and rather symptoms to that. With this assessment and my current standing on that she is fine and deserves time to enjoy life (live at home, over care facility). what is to be expected and what can I do. I support my mom completely and if she passes some of these tests, is there a chance she does not have it?
