This is my first post - so here goes! My mother, in her late 60s has Alzeheimers and has had for about 10 years. She lives in ireland with my father who cares for her at home - he is in his early 70s. Mum's on Aricept, so her decline has been slowed down, but she's now in the position of being very difficult to go out with in public. They are both visiting us in London this week. We were in a shopping centre with her and we needed to take her to the toilet. But once in there, she refused to go in to the loo, or come out with me, meaning I had to get my father to come into the ladies loo and get her out. This is making it increasingly difficult to go out with her - does anyone have any suggestions. She becomes quite agressive when she doesn't want to do something. I'm worried that my father will end up becoming reclusive because he's so worried about what people will say or think.
