      My dad has dementia which fortunately was caught early. My parents talked about his perceived issues and eventually went to the doctor. If you phrase the conversation so that he can prove himself right that there is nothing wrong, that might get him off to the doctor. If so try to go with him so that you can voice your concerns. It can be difficult getting that needed diagnosis, but is esential so you can access all the help there is out there. Good luck.

      Hello, have a look at the Alzhiemers Society Talking Point forum. It’s a good place to go for useful information, chat to others in the same boat and feel reassured. I spent a lot of time on there because my Dad has dementia.
