Older Brother with Dementia/Mind, Brain Studies.....
« on: March 15, 2019, 09:56:05 AM »
Learned yesterday that he thinks he has two cats, instead of one. 

Maybe he's gone downhill quickly?  He didn't think this when I saw him last week.......or, it doesn't mean much.

Cogniciti is associated with Baycrest.  Not sure if you have to be over a certain age to do the tests, volunteer to be a guinea pig.

I changed my mind on doing a memory study....  Might be a little stressful:  going all the way to Baycrest, trying to get family member to come with me, MRI's....etc...  I have enough medical appointments (nothing serious).

For the memory studies, they often want a spouse/family member to accompany the person in the study...so they can ask them re my memory.
I had told them I can MAYBE get a family member to accompany me once, not regularly.

Maybe I can do a study in the future.
