My mother, who is 97, just saw her PCP. He has been recommending the last few visits that she see a neurologist, as she is getting quite forgetful. However, at her advanced age, I would expect her to be! She had a fall and fractured her hip in October, and it seems that, after that, her memory really started deteriorating. When the VNA asked her what year it was, she started to say, "19....." Her PCP quizzed her a little, like what's my name, who am I, which she got right, but she tries to "mask" that she really doesn't remember. What questions should I ask the neurologist? I'm wondering if it is really even worth the visit. At her retirement facility, they said there are certain drugs they can put her on to improve her memory (Aricept was one of the ones they mentioned), but I'm not really sure if the neurologist visit is just another inconclusive doctor visit. Anyone have an advanced age parent who has seen one?
