 When it comes to your Health  and the Doctor's you may have to see such as Neurologist or whatever you HAVE to be the advocate
YOU have to make a list ( or should) to take with you and ask all the questions you want answers for
DO not let the doc get out of that room w/o answering your questions and
IF it is a good doc he / she will stay and answer ALL your questions
Make sure you know what is to come and what you may be able to do for self in the interrim,take notes or have person with you take notes

IF you can not do this for yourself make sure you have a trusted friend partner GO in with you and tell the doc they are there to get the answers for you .........
YES it is much harder when faced with a dementias BUT as posted have someone you trust help you out .......
REMEMBER the Doctor works for YOU............
 
AS with any medical issue YOU are your BEST ADVOCATE............IMHO
 
Input appreciated..........LYN
