Yes, but also remember seniors and anesthesia are a horrible combination and it takes weeks and months for the effects to wear off, B or no B. I had a family member have surgery in their 80s and for several months afterwards he was not the same, he gradually got better and by about five months was his old self, it was scary. Same thing you are talking about, though.
Some anesthetics are harder on a senior brain than others, so if surgery for your senior loved one is in the future, I would research all the anesthesia options and talk to the doctors, then insist on the one that had the least side effects for your situation. And of course take plenty of balanced B complex!
