    Can anyone advise the best way to get my mom to the doctors, without upsetting her, I have asked her see her doctor as she was not herself, she made an appointment then cancelled it.

    As a family we have notice a decline in mom's behaviour, all of a sudden turning agressive, loss of memory, forgetting what she was going to say next, becoming very vacant, getting worse in the last 6 month.

    My father will not suggest the doctors as he is afraid of her reaction to him. Mom says her forgetfulness is due to her age (65).

    Any suggestions really appreciated.

    What about your dad suggesting that they both go in for general health check ups or blood pressure checks or something? If your dad could pre-warn the GP of the problem, then he/she could take the opportunity of 'having a chat' with your mum.
