Limbo after failure to take test

My wife developed dementia about 18 months ago; she was referred to the memory clinic, but refused to participate in the questionnaire procedure and to visit etc.

I wrote to them describing in detail her symptoms and ask if medication could be prescribe, adding that I would take full responsibility.

They replied that they could not take any action without the involvement of my wife and refers the matter back to out local surgery.

My wife is without medication and her condition is deteriorating with a predominate feature of hallucinations.

Please is there anything I can do

Hi doggy, I see you are in the UK. may i suggest that you contact your local alzheimers society there. they are very helpful and might have a solution for you.

Re: Limbo after failure to take test

Zonk made a good suggestion and I might add.... try to get her to go again. The only reason my Mom went was to prove us wrong. So tell her if nothing is wrong with her then go prove it....

I hate you are having to deal with this disease but welcome to the board. Hopefully you will find some answers here.

Love, deb
