So 91 year old mum who has been referred to a memory clinic and yet has no diagnosis of dementia or similar type problem. She does however have what I believe to be dementia. Mum is registered blind and has diabetes which means she can no longer feel her lower legs properly. She constantly asks for pain killers and we feel awful to tell her she had them 5/10 mins ago. Mum has loop conversations for all of us "kids" mine goes what time do you start work are you wrapped up warm mind the road etc. Does anybody have any way of breaking loop conversations, we do change subject but she returns straight back to it !
