My Grandad is 86 this month. He and my Gran are still together. Over the past year we have noticed a change in his appearance, memory, etc. Today my Mum took him to our own GP who confirmed it with her that he has mild Alzheimers. My Gran broke her hip 9 weeks ago and spent 3 weeks in hospital - he does not remember this happening. Our GP has suggested a specialist(to my Mum), but my Grandad has to agree, which I know he wont! Is treatment really necessary? This is all so new to us - any help would be gratefully appreciated.
