Mum has had two TIA's in the last 2 weeks, each time I have taken her to A & E. Mum was diagnosed with alzhiemer's five years ago she was taken off aricept 8 weeks ago due to the side effects it was causing. She has declined, I live with Mum but also have to go out to work 4 days a week. The doctor at A & E told me not to take Mum to hospital unless after 1 hr she has not returned to herself, she has been put on blood thinning tablets. It is so frightening when I go out to work because she has refused all services offered by social services. Is this a normal part of alzhiemer's ? Has this happened to anyone else caring for someone ?
