Hello! I am a newly registered member and am convinced that my wife, who has just turned 60, has had Alzheimer's or a similar form of dementia for the last 2 years or so and it is gradually getting worse. Her father, who is 86, has suffered from Alzheimer's for a number of years and is now in a home with incontinence and spends most of his time in bed. My wife has some of the symptoms that I have seen in her father (she repeats things a lot and has a very bad short-term memory), but whenever I suggest that she sees a doctor about this, she brushes off the suggestion with a mere "You're being paranoid". So I'm struggling get her along to the doctor's to at least get a diagnosis. All I can think of is to speak to the surgery to see if they can suggest anything that I can do to arrange for her to see the doctor, but if anybody on here has had a similar experience and can provide some useful advice, it would be greatly appreciated.
