    My mother’s doctor believes my mother is in the early stages of dementia.
    She is only 55 and I’m 26 and I feel totally helpless.
    I’d like your advice on how to go about it. I feel at a loss and feel like I’m about to lose my mind.
    If you could please email me back at momdontforget@gmail.com I’d greatly appreciated.

    • It is very upsetting when a loved one is diagnosed with dementia, especially at a young age. I would seek a second opinion as other diseases can appear dementia-like e.g. lyme disease. But if your mom does have dementia work with a social worker to help you put in place the services she will be needing. You cannot do this alone. Get all the legal paperwork in order including a living will, power of attorney, will, health proxy etc. An estate lawyer will be able to help you. If that is too expensive speak with her physicians and find out what resources they can direct you to. It can be frustrating but having some expert help will make things easier. Best of luck.
