I am sorry to hear. This could be a sign of Dementia as you have suggested.
It would be reasonable to investigate this to see if something can be done to help him with it
I am unable to take the call until later today, which I am happy to arrange or we can message?
Thanks. So you this important initially to have bloods as certain deficiencies such as folate deficiency can aggravate this. If this is normal then it would be reasonable to have a formal memory assessment and an MRI head if possible. These are important as a deficiency can be corrected, and if this is Dementia there are medications which can actually improve the symptoms and delay the progression.
Okay thanks. So if his b12 and folate were fine, he now just needs and MRI and assessment
The assessment yes, the MRI would be a different appointment
I understand, It doesn’t sound like epilepsy.
