My father in law is currently in hospital. We believe he has moderate dementia, but until now, he lived with his wife, and they declined any kind of investigation. My mother in law has passed away, and we wonder if we should push for a diagnosis whilst he is in hospital? He has apparently had a CT head scan, and is due to see the mental health team, so I'm not sure if this is something they might be intending to investigate fully, or whether he will be discharged back into the community without this. His GP had made a referral to the memory team prior to his admission to hospital, but he has yet to be seen by them. This is totally new to us, so any advice would be brilliant. We don't want to be pushy, but also, we haven't been able to access any support without any diagnosis, so it would be really useful for all of us. It's been like hitting a brick wall at every turn, when people find out he hasn't been diagnosed with dementia even though he has quite advanced cognitive impairment (in my opinion).
