I've posted on this forum in the past. My Dad was driving and I knew he had undiagnosed Dementia. He lives with my Uncle, Auntie and Cousin. My Uncle won't take him to the doctors. The rest of the family have in recent months admitted to me that they have been telling my Uncle to take my Dad to the doctors. My Uncle won't take him. The only way for a doctor to see him is if I ring the surgery and ask for a home visit. I would say he is mid stage. I don't know what type of dementia he has. I managed to get his doctor to do an over 75 medical a couple of years ago, but have no idea what happened. Later that year he was hospitalised. The hospital recommended he attend a memory clinic and sent a letter to his doctor. The appointment should have come through in three months, but didn't. At a further hospital check up, the hospital asked about the memory clinic and why my Uncle hadn't chased it up. He said because he figured they were busy!!! So...as far as I know he hasn't been diagnosed. The family were blaming it on the high level of statins he's on. but he was showing signs of dementia before that. To cut a long story short, when do I step in, or do I leave it? My Dad is still shaving, but smelled of wee last time I was there. I checked his bed which was dry but also smelled of wee. He kept saying he was wet at the front. I told my Uncle. He said it was sweat. I've looked after my Dad for a few hours for three days whilst my Uncle visited my Auntie in hospital. He thinks he's working (he retired in 1998, and the job he thinks he does, he left in 1986). He is hallucinating, his balance isn't good. He thinks people on the tv are staring at him. He thinks he has no money (he has plenty). He's tried to pay for meals or a cuppa that we've had in the house. I could go on and on. On the plus side, he's being fed well and all his meds are given at the correct time. My Auntie says my Uncle is burying his head in the sand, which he is, but he's my Dad. What do I do?
