Hello , I am sorry to hear about your situation. I can imagine how hard it must be for you. In your query you have not mentioned the diagnosis so I can't suggest exactly what needs to be done but I will explain how it works .. The fact that you mentioned that she doesn't remember anyone could be a part of 1. Dementia for which you would require a neurologist , Medications can help to an extent . 2. Psychosis or Depression can have such reactions , you will require a Psychiatrist for this . A complete evaluation is required , the doctor might do a CT/ MRI depending on the symptoms and start treatment accordingly and yes Medications can help to an extent depending on severity of the issue. One way is to get her treated on OPD basis ie at home with followuos with doctor , or you can opt for residential treatment facilities which keep the patient in the facility and there is a holistic approach to treatment where doctor , nurses , therapist , etc works as a team in recovery . I would need more information about symptoms or need to talk to your mother to be able to understand exactly what she is going through . I hope this helps .. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. take care .
