Yes, the story was believable! I really liked the way the author told the story from the Doctor's point of view. You could see the confusion of the doctor, how the doctor was suffering from not being able to recall things that happened just minutes before. It is so unforunate that people who suffer dementia cannot even entertain them selves by reading or watching TV. As an avid book reader, I would be devastated by not being able to read. It must be very hard for a care-giver, especially a related care-giver, to see this happen. After putting my grandfather in a care facility for dementia, my grandmother got him released! Finally after the city attorney threatened placement in a state facility, my grandmother left him in the facility near her home and eventually ended up in the same facility herself.
