Hi, I am a new member and this is my first thread so I hope I get this right. I have been caring for my mother in law full time now for 4 months, but part time for the last 3 years. This weekend she was taken into hospital because she wasn't responding to any thing, or any one. The doctors are saying that they are trying to work out why she is so confused, I've told them she has alziemers and has been confused for the past 3 years now, but has been getting worse over the last 4 months, but they just look at me blankly when I tell them this. My question is how much do the doctors in the hospitals know about alzheimers ? Very little from what I can see. I'm no expert on the matter, but just looking after mum has taught me that they do have confusion, they do get lost in strange places and they need a routine to help keep the confusion down. So why don't the doctors see this.?
