Does my grandma have alzheimer’s disease?
I know a dr should be the one to diagnose her but there’s only so much I can do if my parents don’t really take her. But anyways this is what she show’s:
She is 73 years old and forgets about things she may have just asked. Such as asking something and 5 minutes later asking again. Like welcoming me after not seeing me for 3 months and then asks me an hour later when I got back.
I dont know if this would count as mood swings but she is mad at my cousin which she helped raise for some ridiculous thing. That is not even possible. she thinks my cousin stole from her but my cousin is 11 and doesnt live with her. She has become angry with some other people with the believe that they have ruined her property.
and she just is repetitive with the things she says. She also sometimes forgets to eat, or says she already ate when she hasn’t. We have to monitor her closely to make sure she eats. We have found plates forgotten in the microwave.
is this dementia? alzheimer’s? is she just getting old? what is the right way to go about this?
