Put it in writing
Just a suggestion.
When you are dealing with a company or government, put your issues in writing.
In the time I've been reading here I've read several threads where there is a mention of calling about AZ/Dementia issues. Especially on something like getting someone's ability to drive re-evaluated, put it in writing.
A phone call is easy to dismiss. But once they receive a letter, it's a document they can't pretend never arrived. It took one letter to the DMV and there was an investigator on my Mom's doorstep within 2 weeks. When it became apparent to him she was not well, he followed through and went to her doctor. Up until then, he'd just suggested she not drive. At that point, he did the actual paperwork and her license was revolked.
I'm pretty sure phone calls would not have gotten this action. I didn't write the letter but I was glad someone did.
Just a suggestion. Leave a paper trail.
...And one more thing. When the investigator arrived, he did allow my Mom to read the letter but she was not allowed to copy or keep it. So she was aware of the person who turned her in. It was someone she barely knew and I suspect was written at the request of a person closer to her who did not want the "blame".
