So my mother has been getting more consistent in the type of memory slips she is having and I was wondering if anyone here might recognize the pattern as indicating early Alzheimer's or something else. Just today she said to me didn't you have a dog that used to do this certain trick? And I reminded her that it was actually a dog she used to have that did that. Then she said oh yeah, that was Spot....but actually Spot lived twenty years after Bucky who was the one who did the trick. So she'll think a memory of hers is actually something that happened to me. Sometimes she'll claim a memory from my life as something that happened to her. And then mix up the time period, person or pet, the memory actually was attached to. She'll also remember all the details of a grocery item she buys all the time except it's name. Like she'll say you know those potato chips that are the jalapeno flavor and I'll have to help her remember it is Mrs. Vick's brand but she buys them every week. She's hopefully going to be evaluated by a neurologist for memory issues soon, but in the meantime do any of you have any insight?
