It's taken me over a year and a new primary care physician's referral to finally have Mom's short term memory and confusion problems evaluated. She hated the process and was screaming in the car as we drove there...threatening to jump out of the car. (Thank goodness for automatic locks!). This is a huge event for me because I live 400 miles away from Mom (89) who lives independently and drives. Dad (93) is in skilled nursing care with Alzheimer's. She visits him every day. So on Monday, May 9 we go back to the memory center to meet with the neuropsychologist and review her report on Mom. Has anyone been through this process before? Will the report possibly include recommendations about driving and living independently? If not, I'll certainly ask in a tactful and caring way, since Mom will be there. For the past 14 months I've been traveling here every 4-5 weeks and staying a while to "help out." On Monday we'll receive a diagnosis, I suspect. Just wondering how specific it might be...and then how I should proceed afterwards, assuming there will be a diagnosis of dementia of some kind. I'm on all bank accounts, POAs, and they have trusts/wills in place. Mom, like others, resists any idea that there's anything wrong. I'm just hoping the evaluation report will give me some leverage to make plans for the future. Major goal: to keep folks in close proximity to each other and safe...either here...or move them to where I live. I don't feel I can return home and leave her here anymore without some assistance because of her increased confusion and occasional delusions. Sorry to ramble...but, again, any idea if the evaluation report will have specific recommendations?
