Refusal to be assessed advice please Hi, I finally managed to get my gran to my doctors, she went there for unrelated issues but I spoke to the doctor in advance about my concerns she has dementia. She spoke to me after the appointment and has immediately arranged an emergency assessment at our home, my gran is unaware of this and I know will refuse to comply with anyone if questioned. If she refuses to comply are they able to insist she cooporates? The doctor seemed to think it is quite serious especially as she keeps running off in cabs spending hundreds at a time to go to her old house where she is not capable to look after herself anymore, I am helpless to stop her other than hiding her wallet or locking her in!!
