My Mom, 54 years old had a brain aneurysm exploded 9 months ago, suffered from significent bleeding and now has a shunt. However she recovered very well, but only one thing is remaining which is recent memory. Doctors confirmed that recent memory is totally damaged and it could be irreversable, but we figured something out.
What we figured out is that she must READ or SEE someting to remember it, I mean no matter how many times we repeatedly TELL her something (say if she had coffee or not) she asks about it 5 minutes later, sometimes sooner than 5 minutes, and totally denies that she did, however if she reads it in a written format, like news on TV or Facebook, or if we text her important info, or when we keep diary for important daily events, she remembers it right away, and never asks about it again, as a normal person would do.
We have an appointment with her doctor by the end of the month but I'd like someone please to let us know if this could lead to something good for her, and how to make it better for her if possible, all ideas are welcome.
Any feedback please? Thanks in advance.
