As previously mentioned my aunt has dementia and is an insulin dependent diabetic. She needs carers to make sure she eats her meals, but she has no insight into this and all she says is that I have been ok for 6o years. She is in hospital at the moment, what should we say to her to try and make her see that she needs carers when she says she doen't? If she doesnt eat she will have a hypoglycaemic attack and end up in hospital again, unlike non-diabetics it does matter if she misses the odd meal. How do make her see reality when she has no insight. Any advice welcome please.
