Resolved Question:

My mother is in her 70s and has become very forgetful but also obsessive about very minor things. Her short term memory is awful and she is now becoming very short tempered. She is diabetic but I don't know if this is related. How should I proceed.

Question and answer is just one of the services I offer. I can also provide you with premium services, such as live telephone or skype consultation, at a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested.

The next step should be to have her evaluated by a Geriatric specialist

Does this make sense to you?

What if she doesn't agree to this?
Expert:  wieyedoc replied 1 year ago.

Well.....you can't force her to go. Unless, of course, she is a danger to herself or others. Then you could get two doctors to recommend to the Court that she undergo medical evaluation and treatment against her will....

I wouldn't rush to get the Legal system involved at this point from what you have posted.

Make sense?
