  4. Memory Clinic

    Why are doctors so reluctant to diagnose dementia and set so much store by the memory tests? My husband's appointment fell on a good day and he scored well in the tests but the sort of thing they ask are not the things he has difficulty with. Also they don't seem to consider the behaviour and...

  5. 38 year old is having problems getting or finding words

    I am 38 years old having memory problems with things like finding or getting my words out. I sometimes even just forget what I was going to say all together. Having 6 hours worth of testing in one week it seems forever away. Worried beyond belief.

    Hi all, my mum's behaviour has been strange for a few years but lately it's totally erratic. We put it down to my dad being diagnosed terminally ill.

  21. Is diagnosis worth it?

    First post. I suspect I am going to need this forum a lot now that Mum appears to have AD. It has already been fantastically useful reading the various posts and people's generous replies. I say "appears to have" because we don't have a diagnosis. Certainly the decline in my mother's mental...
