Not to go into lots of detail, but Mum is 87 and widowed 5 years ago. Physically fairly well and determined to "live independently". Nearest family (me) live two hours drive away, call or email daily and visit about every other week, staying for a few days. Take her to hospital appointments etc. However she has recurring issues with "funny turns" which aren't medically conclusive, Another family panic tonight, luckily she has fantastic neighbours who have looked after her. We feel these episodes could be related to anxiety and/or depression. More than just feeling a bit lonely. I am wondering whether to call her GP to talk about this? Mum is absolutely resistant to any suggestion of any mental health issues, I suppose it's a generation thing, a stigma attached. How do I approach this with GP, or should I?
