My 86 yr. husband really doesn't want to go to a memory clinic - since his stroke 20 years ago he can't speak, read or write but is a happy and contented soul most of the time. His memory and comprehension have declined immensely over the last 2 to 3 years and the doctor has confirmed dementia. He would like to refer my husband to a memory clinic but I wonder for whose benefit these tests take place. Dementia cannot be reversed and the future looks somewhat bleak at the moment. What would happen if he declines to go to a clinic?
