My mother is 82 years old, in a senior care center in the Alzheimer's unit. She has had dementia/alzheimers for at least 6 years. In the last week she began having heavy bleeding from her vagina. The question is: Do we take her in her mental state to an OB/GYN or let the doctor at the senior care center treat her? She has agreed (when she was in her right mind) to no drastic treatments. THank you
