Diffuse cerebral atrophy is a radiological finding not the disease. It may be the finding of Dementia or age related atrophy. She may have the symptoms of forgetfulness.It is very difficult to diagnose without visiting the patient but one of the possibility is Dementia with behaviour disorder.U r much more concerned with the behavioural symptoms. Along with that ur mother is having behaviour problems which is secondary to disease process. Both the behavioural problems along with the disease process to be taken care of.
