My mum is 80 and showing signs of memory loss and confusion. She has suffered slightly for over a year but refuses to acknowledge it or go to gp. My dad was recently in hospital and is now home. He is very alert mentally but physically poor. My mum is his carer. I've spoke to family gp who is very close to my mum. She advised we need to get her to go to see gp. She won't though saying it's her age.
