As your mom gets up in years, Holly L. Thacker, MD, asks that you encourage her to see her doctor regularly for preventive health care. Women should see their physician every year, even when they’re long past the child-bearing stage, for regular screenings, tests and bloodwork. And if your mom suffers from memory loss, please consider going with her to the doctor to help her process the information.
