My partner had a dementia test, she was not keen on having it but went ahead after taking advice. She has been very foggy, forgetting words, muddling them up and really forgetful. Other than that she isn't too bad and we thought it was unlikely to be dementia but caused by a head injury. Now we're really puzzled because she was told that the scores were very bad to the point where she should be in care but she does not present as being that bad. Could the test be skewed against someone who is tbh, rubbish at puzzles and putting things into context and always has been? She was told she had no mental illness but is being referred back to a shrink. We can't make any sense of it and she is quite upset because she answered all the questions as openly as possible and this is the first time she has ever opened up. The doctor asked if she was over emphasising her feelings and she feels really let down now.
