I am in the same boat you are, just in a different cabin. My mom is 77, I have been reading the many other comments. They are all right. I think I might be a step behind though, I have been working with mom for POA, for my brother and myself, for my mom. One day she tells me she has dementia the next day she tells me she doesn't. Is there something I can try with out her really knowing, ( I know this is sneaky ) that she is being tested before we ask the doctor for some kind of test? Online? Games? Questions? I am up for almost anything. Also, I just want mom to know that we are interested in a simple Living Will and to take care of the POA. She doesn't have much, My brother and I work pretty well together and want the best for her. Is there any thing we should know going into this meeting? Health and Finances is there anything else we might need to know about before we get the paper work done.
