My mum was diagnosed with mild Alzheimer's today, the consultant was very sensitive in the way he told her and gave us lots of information. We have been allocated a dementia link worker who will visit us at home. Also the CPN who conducted the memory test in December will be visiting us at home. The consultant has recommended that she be given donepezil but he checked her pulse and said that as she had a very slightly irregular heart beat that she should have an ECG first. So we have our feet on the beginning of our rocky road.
