I think he has some kind of Alzheimer's or dementia. My Dad is a proud man at the age of 65 he has a tendency of forgetting thing, everyday day things, he is always double or triple checking him self to make sure he has done a certain task, when he goes to the shop it takes him 20 minuets to get ready and he keeps checking his wallet to make sure he has what he needs and because he has spent that long on that particular task he forgot what he was going to the shop for,
When he is going to the bathroom he gets there and forgets what he has gone there for, he is a very confidante person, but lately he does not seem to be able to focus on anything, and has a vacant look, If i say i am coming down to visit he will wait in the window and watch till i get there, he keeps asking my mum when is she coming my mum says later has i gave no time of arrival, mum says he has be stood looking out the window for 3 hours waiting for you and not moved. This is very out of character for my Dad, He had found blood in his urine, he wrote down the time and date, when my mum asked him what it was he said it had happened but because it did not happen again he said he was alright.
I have tried to get my dad to the doctors and has the rest of the family but he will not go, we are all concerned that his health his deteriorating and could be to late for him to be treated if any thing serious, the last time my dad saw a doctor was when he broke his ribs in work 5 years ago, but my dad is so proud he thinks he is ok and he is fine,
Please could you help me or advise me on how i can get my Dad to see a GP.
