Hello, sorry if this has been posted before, but.... My mother has quite advanced Alzheimer's and I was talking to a friend last evening who is concerned about her own mother. It's clear my friends mother has some issues, as she will sometimes talk about getting up for work in the morning to open the shop that she hasn't had for 30 years etc etc. My friend took her mum to the GP who agreed that she probably has Alzheimer's and basically told her to go away. That's really bad.... Isn't it? It's been a good few years since my own mother was diagnosed but shouldn't she have been referred to a memory clinic asap? If nothing else she is obviously not getting any drugs for dementia at present. My advice (and my sisters) was to go back to the GP without her mum and insist that her mother is referred to the memory clinic, do you good people agree? Thanks as always.
