My mum has been noticeably struggling with short term memory, difficulty finding words, what we think could be depression (for a long time) undiagnosed, general loss of doing everyday admin, has almost stopped driving altogether, reliant on our dad for everything yet still functions day to day and has many normal conversations etc. She is already a closed book in terms of her own feelings and we are at a stage where we want a diagnosis or for her to at least speak with a specialist but she gets very upset, angry, histerical and completely against seeking help. She had told my dad she doesn't want people asking how she is or talking behind her back. She doesn't seem to think she needs help. She seems very scared. It's been years of us stepping on eggshells trying to find a gentle way to encourage her but it isn't working so far. It's the elephant in the room. We are nervous it could be treatable like long covid or severe depression or a brain tumour even which could maybe result in similar symptoms to dementia but are all treatable. What if we don't do more. What can we do. We can't force her. Help!
