I am asking about this on behalf of my daughter. Her partner's father has Parkinsons and Dementia, but his mother cannot cope. She will not take any help, will not read anything that may help, refuses to go the doctor, and has turned quite violent towards her husband, pushing him around and such like. She also goes out leaving him alone and he is quite incapable of doing anything for himself. The 3 of us are at our wits end trying to help and really need to know who to turn to, as something plainly needs to be done about the mother before something really bad happens. Can we insist the father goes into a home without her permission? Anyone any ideas of where to go for help?
