"treatment for old lady with severe dementia"

My mother has limited mobility and suffers from severe dementia which meant that she no longer understands how to cooperate at the dentist. Having already met my mother a year ago the community dentist gave my mother the last appointment of the day which meant that after my mother refused to open her mouth when on the chair, the dentist had enough time to follow my mother up and down the corridor after until mum laughed revealing just enough of her mouth for the dentist to confirm their diagnosis. If you can actually get an appointment at a time that is of use, we had to wait a very long time. Then you will receive the best possible service.
