I've scoured the internet and searched this forum site but I can't find an explanation for borderline dementia.
My dad was screened by his geriatrician on Friday and the doctor said he scored borderline dementia. I was not there, my sister was and she is a nurse practitioner so I asked what that meant. Her answer was not very helpful. All she said was the protocol for assessing dementia is a long process and there are preliminary steps to go through before Neuropsychological testing. OK I get that...but I still want to know what borderline dementia means on a screening test. Does anyone here know?
