Last month my mother who looks after my father who has Alzheimers, Parkinsons and a tumour on his brain was fine. She did gardening on the Sunday and by Monday she had vision problems and confusion. At first the GP who my mother called out (but doesn't remember calling out) said it was a suspected mild stroke. There was no visual signs, then after the GP had spoken to another GP they decided it was not a stroke but may be stress caused by looking after my father.
Whatever had happened my mother was acting very strange and I took her to A&E they said they though it was to do with her High blood pressure and stress...Myself and my sister said we wanted her to have a brain scan which she did last Saturday and no results given to her at present. However today My mother got a letter asking her to come in for an appointment for Alzheimers testing.
We are all very worried about her and my father has gone into respite while she has tests etc.
Can Alzheimers/Dementia come on so sudden?
