Long story short due to my mom's memory loss I wanted her to be evaluated so I would know how more to help and protect her we went in to hear her report. After ruling out the physical they gave her a cognitive test for Dementia/Alzheimer's. The neurologist said she has Alzheimer's. I asked him what stage and he said he doesn't believe in stages because there is no accurate way of really knowing that I have to use my judgment as to what we need to do etc…..I proceeded to ask him then any advice on day to day living etc….. again a judgment call on my part. He did prescribe Aricept for her( 5mg moving to 10 mg). He stated she has significant issues with present memory but seemed vague with his diagnoses to what stage she is in so I can find help. I feel the stage he gives me would help me determine what I need to do with her in keeping her safe. If you can tell me what questions to ask so I can call his nurse and ask them or change doctors.
