We started to notice back during the summer something going on with my wifes aunt. she would call needing me to come get her car into the garage among other things. Well in september we recieved a call from her hair dresser saying that she had shown up to her hair appt late with an unknown female driving the car. After further investigation I found that she had been unable to find the hair solon and had pulled into a former place of employment to ask directions. A female employee had taken her to the appt and then home. We took her to the ER and after a CT scan the doctor told us that the confusion was from senile dementia.In the following weeks of talking to people that know her including her pharmacist. We heard stories of her actions that we had never known about. From cursing out a local retailer thinking they had moved kohls to blamming a walmart employee for stealing her keys. Anyway I am sure you all have had your share of situations much like this. I found the forum a while back and have found it to be a resource. Thanks for reading.

Welcome. Sorry its under these conditions but you will find a lot of info , sharing and support here.
Best thing I can offer is that you go to the proper specialists and get the best/correct diagnosis/medications. Then educate yourself on the diagnosis and meds.

Dementia diseases are very sad diseases.

Good luck to you
