What do you do when your loved one can't/won't accept that there is anything wrong with them and refuses to go for medical treatment? I literally had to force my mom to go to the hospital when she started acting strange and they diagnosed her with dementia. She was supposed to go back to the neurologist for more tests but she refuses because she thinks she's fine and is hostile to any suggestion that she might be "crazy" or that there is anything wrong with her head. I have to lie to her just to get her to take medication. Because of her attitude I have absolutely nowhere to turn in seeking medical advice about how to care for her. Does anyone else have this problem? How do you deal with someone who is in denial and how to you get them to go along with getting the necessary treatment?
