Hi I'm after a bit of advice really on my dad's behalf. We strongly suspect my mum has dementia. She has been to the GP and then onto seeing a neurologist - she had an MRI scan done and diagnosed with "water on the brain" (sorry I can't remember the medical term for it). She had a lumber puncture done and when they last saw the consultant he said the last option was to have a shunt put in which she absolutely refuses to have done which I can't really blame her for to be totally honest. My dad asked if there was a possibility it could be anything else ie dementia and the consultant said that he didn't think it could be anything else. We are now at a loss as to what to do next - I've said he needs go to back to the GP and ask for a second opinion, she's totally changed from what she used to be like - memory problems, mobility problems, irrational behaviour and volatility - she can flip out at the slightest thing. My dad is doing a lot of the cooking and cleaning now but I'm worried about him too as he's really struggling with her behaviour -saying it's grinding him down and that he feels trapped. Both of them are retired and have no other interests outside the home (he enjoyed cycling and they both used to go walking which because of her mobility they can't do any more and with the cycling mum has managed to stop him from doing that) . I've done the AD 8 questionnaire and she ticks all the boxes except for maybe one. Help!!!! I'm sorry it's so long but I'm worried about both of them - I have a sister and brother and we all agree that there's something not right.
