I am looking for advice and help. My father-in-law is, I would say, well beyond early dementia/Altzheimer's stages, but refuses to visit a doctor to be assessed. This is causing my mother-in-law a considerable difficulty as we believe that there could be something that the doctor could give him to help ease his symptoms and of course, make it easier to live with him! He is a big man and flies off the handle as soon as anything is said or done that doesn't agree with him and we are beginning to think that he could become violent. He is still driving although he no longer knows exactly how to find his destination and we feel that he is a danger not only to himself, but other road users. The doctor says there is nothing that can be done if my father-in-law refuses to see him and the family feels that we are going round in circles. How do we help father-in-law?
