Finally got my cousin's psychiatric report (a month later!) Here are some examples: "She also showed evidence of perseveration, constructional apraxia, and attentional problems. In short, she is functioning far below her premorbid status cognitively, to the point where she cannot manage her own finances, cannot give informed legal or medical consent, cannot manage her own ADLs, and would be a danger to herself if she were left alone for any length of time. Mental status examination reveals an 82-year-old, Caucasian female who appears her stated age. Eye contact is poor. Dress is disheveled with adequate hygiene. Interview behavior is defensive. Mood is depressed with anxious and angry affect. Flow of thought is confused, often illogical, perseverative, but is goal directed for basics. Speech is marked with some decreased verbal fluency and word finding problems. Motor activity is weak and unsteady. Appetite is scattered. She has difficulty falling Occupational Therapist (OT) and having restful sleep. She denies suicidal ideation. She demonstrates occasional paranoid delusions. No evidence of hallucinations or illusions is elicited. Judgements for social matters and for personal safety, are both adequate. ...She is in need of 24-hour nursing supervised care in a sheltered setting. She needs to have a legal guardian appointed for her immediately."
