My Mum is 84 and keeps fairly good health. She lives by herself in a sheltered house and manages quite well. She has a cleaner going in once a week and she gets meals delivered which just go in the microwave. She can still get out and about. My sister and I don't live too far away from her and we visit quite regularly. Her memory is getting really bad and she gets very confused and frustrated. This seems to be deteriorating very quickly and I think it's time we bring up the subject with her and ask if she would be willing to be assessed. I assume her Doctor is the first port of call, but would be grateful if anyone could tell me what the procedure is so that I can maybe talk her through it so she can be a bit prepared. I don't want her getting stressed or anxious about this and think it would be helpful to have a bit of information to give her. Thanks for your help.
