Memory loss in mother

Tell us a bit about yourself here.
Hiya I'm reaching out for help as I'm finding it really hard to look after my mother who is experiencing memory loss. She has not been diagnosed with a condition as yet but we are going to the doctors on Wednesday. I have my own health problems and finding this really hard
Hi Linda,
I'm glad you found us. Make sure the GP sends mum to a "Memory Clinic" or similar, because a formal diagnosis IS VERY IMPORTANT. It's like a password for getting Attendance Allowance, exemption from Council Tax, and helps get support from Social Services. So don't be fobbed off with some vague description.
Also sort out Power of Attorney as soon as possible, if you haven't done so. The door is fast closing to do this!!!
