I am a psychologist (licensed in Louisiana) who specializes in older adults, and who works with demented people a lot. See if you can get your mom's permission to speak directly with her doctors. That seems to be the ONE way you'll…"
"My late husband was somehow naturally religious and had been a Jew, a Christian and then again a Jew before he died about 4 years ago. We were members of a synagogue when he died. I went through the prescribed Jewish mourning rituals, even though I…"
