I am new to this forum - my Mum is 93 this week - physically ok (other than AMD and some deafness) but has had memory problems for the past few years. Recently, however, she has been getting much worse - doesn't seem to retain information for more than a few minutes. Both her parents had dementia - her Mum had Alzheimers, her Dad had Vascular dementia. I have never asked her to see the GP about this as I worry that she will think she is going the way of her parents. Now, however, I feel that some medical input is required - is there any point in trying to persuade her to see her GP? Or can little be done?
