He sometimes no idea that he is talking that way. please help. he is refusing to go to a doctor. he wants to stay home! Thank You!

  2. I think every person is different, but I would try to see if you can consult a doctor or even do some type of consultation online with a doc if he is refusing to go to a doctor. I am so sorry for your ordeal. Please consider reaching out to the folks at Banner Alzheimer’s Institute in Phoenix for resources and help.
