Hi, my MIL lives with us as we had noticed that she wasn’t coping on her own. She’s been here for 10 months and myself and my husband have seen so many incidents of memory loss, confusion, struggles with new tasks, leaves shopping at the shops, money in the cash point, not participating in conversations or social events etc. She has lost three stone and has a massive sweet tooth and no sense of smell. I have been taking her to the doctor to get various test done (her daughters will not accept that there is anything wrong with her and make excuses for every symptom and don’t support us in any way) We finally had the Mental Health nurse come out yesterday to do some tests. Frustratingly my MIL was bright as button and scored 82/100 and the nurse kept commenting that she was so quick and doing fabulously well. I’m now concerned that the nurse will report back that they don’t think there is a problem or that I’m seeing a problem where there isn’t one. Can someone with some form of dementia have really good days and then really bad days? My husband works away during the week so I am left to care for my MIL along with her three dogs and my two young children and I feel that I need a diagnosis so I can prepare myself for what’s coming if that makes sense. Thank you if you’ve read this far.
