A neurologist? She has no short term memory and repeats herself constantly. Thanks for your help! My mom is 85 and has memory issues. My sister and I live 2 hours away and feel like we're not doing what we should be doing to help our mom. I want to take her to a doctor but don't know what type of doctor. I'm fearful that giving her medication for memory will have no benefit and will only cause side effect so I don't know going to the doctor will be helpful. I've heard about coconut oil to remove plaque from the brain that may cause memory issues. I'm so confused but want to do right by my mom. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
