My dad was diagnosed with the beginnings of dementia due to having amyloid angiopathy back in February. In the last 2 years he has had 3 strokes, and is now living in a home for people with dementia, which he hates. He has a bit of a memory problem, but it is more his logic and sense that are going. He is now convinced there is nothing wrong with him (2 separate doctors said that before they saw his CT and MRIs) and wants to move back to Canada (my sister & I were born there, but my parents are from Liverpool so we are all back in the UK with family trying to deal with this, and my mum who has multiple myeloma but is thankfully in remission). Sorry, this is a bit rambling, but I am at my wits end. He is constantly lying to us and not telling us what is going on, so we have only just found out that his idiot GP sent him to a psychiatrist (which cost him £385) who he told he was seeing as his family were concerned about his cognitive function after a road accident which left him in the hospital for 2 months. He did have an accident, but then had a stroke while in A&E and was in the hospital for 3 weeks. Now this doctor has referred him to a doctor in Harley Street for a neuropsychological assessment. GOD knows how much that is going to cost!?!? They are also referring him to get a brain scan, which will likely also be expensive. What can I do? If I step in my father will go berserk, but if I don't I am worried that all these idiot doctors are going to rinse my dad for thousands! Forgot to mention he reason my dad is doing all this is so the 'specialist' can prove to US (!) that he doesn't have dementia and can move back to Canada.
