Asking The Right Questions
I’ve been taking my mother to the doctor almost every month for the past year and I know I can do more to help her. She is losing some memory and I want to talk to the doctor about it but I don’t know what to ask.

As a caregiver, you need to be well informed about your elder loved one’s mental and/or physical limitations. The best way to do that is to spend time researching any situation on the Internet or at your local library. And before you ask any questions from any medical professionals, write them out before you visit with them. When possible, I also fax the questions to the professionals involved in case they can do research to find the best answers. I even follow up after I send the fax to make sure my questions have been received and placed in my client’s folder.
