  HI all
Just want to let all know that look after their loved ones and may have to take them to the doc appointments like the Neuroligist or even a family doc visit
Have the person IF capable give their INPUT in the way they want it to be taken and let them stand up for selves to some points
IF they are able too have them sit and do notes on questions they have
Tell them it is OK to ask Doctor to look at them and talk  to them 
Many docs as has been said I have seen as well will talk right over the patient and give info to caregiver or loved one
YES this can be great and very useful BUT it can also be detrimental IMHO as it can cause the Patient to feel like a wee child that is being " watched over and will be chastised when they leave doc"s office"
For those able let them have a big calendar and let them mark off special days as appointments and visits and Birhtdays ect.........
Try to keep them as ACTIVE in their healthcare as is possible .......Thanks Snowy ......
