Before you accept a diagnosis of Dementia, please have a full physical exam.
4 medical issues that could be mistaken for Alzheimer’s disease:
•Medication. The medications your doctor prescribes could provide different side effects as you age. … (Have your meds looked at for adverse Drug Interactions)
•Urinary Tract Infection. A urinary tract infection (UTI) happens when bacteria reaches the urethra, the tube that carries urine out of the bladder. …
•Depression. … (especially now with COVID)
•Vitamin B12 Deficiency. (Check for ALL low vitamins and minerals)
In the meantime………. one of the most important document your loved one can have is a well written, broad POWER OF ATTORNY. Not matter what the outcome of a medical exam, your loved one needs to know, and you have the peace of mind that you can act on their behalf.
