I think that my father has dementia, but I am not allowed to talk to his doctor. My mother will goes to the doctor with him, but she has her own mental issues and will not talk about this her children. Both parents are in their 80's.
He recently was in a car wreck and he had been drinking too. He said that he didn't hit her, but there was a dent in the other car door. The police were not called. I live several states away so I am hearing this second hand from my sister.
He tells the same stories repeatedly several times an hour. We had a stove replaced and he thought that he fixed it hours after the installers left. He gets agitated at sundown. He gets confused easily. I don't know what my options are and I am just starting to look for answers. So if this is something that has been discussed here already I am sorry.
Any information would be welcome.
