My mother was recently diagnosed with dementia. The ranking

Customer Question

My mother was recently diagnosed with dementia. The ranking that they came up with was a 21. I want to find out what is or can be expected from her behavior. I spoke with several doctors who were not able to spend time telling or explaining to me what will occur. I also asked if she would need care 24hrs a day. They were unable to tell me that also but said that the nurse would be able to tell me that. I did not know that a nurse would have that ability. Please assist. Thank you
