I wholeheartedly agree, take her to the doctor. There are treatment options that work better when it's caught earlier. Hugs!
Yes to this. My grandmother also had dementia, but it was increasingly worse when she had a UTI. It was actually the first sign anyone noticed that indicated that she may have a UTI, as she never had any burning, urges, or pain with urination.
