I'm sorry for your concerns about your mother.

It would be best to go to a gerentologist or neurologist. You might be able to get the names of some doctors who specialize in dementia from your local Alzheimer's Association. In case you haven't looked at the Alzheimer's Association web site , you might want to check it out. It's extremely informative and helpful.

Best of luck to you and your mother. Please let us know what you find out.
