My husbands father clearly has some form of dementia, he's been deteriorating for the last two years. The thing is no one will make him go to the Dr's. He refuses to go when his wife (Husband's mum) asks him, and she won't let anyone else talk to him because 'It'll strip away the last piece of dignity he has'. She's clearly not helping him and the rest of us are unsure what to do. He has to go to the Dr's for a routine check soon, and she's promted the Dr to look out for it, but if he does go, that'll be where it stops, there's no way he'd got to a consultant or have an MRI. Any advice from anyone in a similar situation would be great. We're trying to get her to comprehend the severity of what's happening, but she thinks it's her duty to just care for him come what may. I've suggested that drugs will slow the progression, but no one's forcing him to confront it.
