My sister in law is as logical as ever in speaking with her--however, she does have short term memory and has been identified with mild dementia possibly Alzheimer's.
"She has not lost her intellect but only short term memory" at least for the period called "mild dementia" and possible Alzheimer's? Is this common--or is she an exception?
The only other symptoms are loss of hunger and apathy--but nothing else. She can read reconizes people, speaks as good as she ever did--sees the point of a joke or she alwaus has a come back answer to any question as fast as she ever did--but--the stigma of Alzheimer's has caused her to lose control of or have any accountability of her finances or control of her living facility.
How can she demand that she be consulted on all matters that concern her or her own finances? She is very concerned about this--but has given up trying to get any control back and I do not know how to help her.
