Yes! I completely understand your situation. My mother also began that over 16 years ago. My initial suggestion is to keep a journal of her behavior/disorientation. This will help you see if there is any unusual change, frequency or just an occasional attack. If she's very involved, busy with several things (civic duties, clubs) can be a good reason she is this way. This is what the doctors told us about my mother. It became much worse over the years. She is now in a home. She no longer feeds herself, dresses herself or talks. Please keep record of troubled times and consult a family doctor. Above all, Pray! Good luck and God bless!
