New doc. New meds. New test. New mom.
 

I just got off the phone with a publishing colleague. He first called me in September, when his mom started to forget family member names and eventually even got lost driving home from the drugstore. He was concerned that his mom’s doctor was not taking her symptoms seriously (just aging). According to my friend, his mom thought the doctor was handsome and nice, so she liked and trusted him. I suggested that he visit the regional memory disorder center with his mom. Within weeks of the geriatrician in the memory disorder center getting a handle on the myriad of drugs that his mom had been taking, he reports that “She’s back to being my mother, her memory and judgment are sharp and clear as ever, and she loves the new doctor” A great example of a Fearless Caregiver.

 

Have you ever been faced with a situation where you had to fire your loved one’s healthcare professional?
