Hi everyone. Joined last week after Mum newly diagnosed. Has taken few days to get back on an even keel but now feel more rational. Thanks to all for supportive messaqes. Now have so many questions. Mum lives alone more than 100 miles away. We first noticed short term memory problems about 3 years ago. Mum has gone from being an outgoing sociable lady with a love of the Arts to living a lonely reclusive lifestyle. She has cut herself off from most friends and spends every day alone. She has no interest in her appearance and hates changing her clothes. Food has become very important to her. Is this "normal"?
