It may be helpful to talk to friends or family members who have had some experience with dementia.
Prepare a number of questions to take for discussion with the GP. Asking Questions About Dementia Can Help, a booklet from Palliative Care NSW and Dementia Australia NSW may help you prepare for a discussion with your GP.
Let the GP know about information for GPs that is available on this website as well as the Detect Early website.
What to do if your concerns are not addressed
If you still feel your concerns have not been addressed, ask for a second opinion or a referral to a geriatrician or neurologist.
If your GP is still unresponsive, consider transferring to another GP.
