Why entertain the delusional right.

FWIW, I know dementia. 1poormom has it, and it's getting worse. She still remembers me, but doesn't now remember the name of our daughter or my MIL. She knows they are around, but can't pull the names out.

Joe does not have any significant dementia. Even before we had to move my mother to assisted living -when she was still living alone- he speaks better than she did, and can maintain a train of thought. Now even more so.

His predecessor exhibited slurred speech on numerous occasions, sometimes rambled incoherently for hours, and only knew about five adjectives (including "terrific", "bad", and "terrible"). The latter may be a poor education. The former may or may not have been dementia. Like Reagan when he left office we may not know for another year or two.
