I am new to this forum and hope that I can get support for taking care of my sister who has been diagnosed with dementia. My biggest problem right now is that she refuses to go to the doctor. She has an appointment next week and me and another sister is taking her. What do I do if she won't get out of the car?

Ask her to go with you for your appointment, other sisters just like her along for the ride, if she's helping you not you helping her, might work. K
