My wife is expert at erecting a mental block against undesirable knowledge. She must be aware of her dementia but never speaks of it. This makes it very difficult to follow up any of the non-medical forms of treatment. Going to see some specialist in, say, cognitive therapy, would force the issue. Anyway, I doubt if it could be done because just the suggestion would frighten. We tried a day centre but it was an off day and she got aggressive, which is not very common. Any comments would be welcome.
