Good evening, My client who has dementia was complaining about

Good evening, My client who has dementia was complaining about the back of her head. She said it was hurting. I examined the back of her head right side. I felt like a round minor puffed up bump. She explained she was alright so i left it alone. Then about a half hour she was complaining about the right side but up top side. I told her son we took blood pressure it was 162/101. She is 74 insisting she is fine.

I am concerned. What should her son do.

My 80 year old mother, who is suffering with dimentia, has developed blisters on the inside and outside of her feet. In the past week she has been behaving strangely, listless, unable to walk the stairs, decrease in appetite and she has seems to have difficulty holding up her head. Are these symtoms related at all? My sister is on her way to the hospital with our mother now, but I am curious about her condition. Outside of the dimentia, she is in very good health.

Hi, I am 67 yrs. old, full time employed and in good health. my supervisor thinks I should be tested for dementia because some said I for get things sometimes ( who doesn t ? ) I do not agree and don t think I should have to go through that. I read up on dementia and it would be a real pain to satisfy a unsubstantiated request. Any ideas? Thanks
