My husband has Mild Congnitive Impairment which was diagnosed over two years ago. I have been dealing with a lot of things but at this time I need help and don't really know who to turn to. We have a dog who has been diagnosed with Type I Diabetes. I have been treating her now for two weeks. He doesn't trust the vet. Told me last night that if she dies he will kill me. I tried to ignore him as he has said things of this nature before. This time it really scared me. A little while later he said he would never hurt me. Then as usual as he does every night tells me he loves me. I was wondering if his dementia is progressing. He won't go back to the Neurologist or his PCP. He thinks he is OK. I see him declining everyday. Who should I ask for help? The Neurologist or the PCP? If I could find some help maybe we could trick him into getting to a doctor. I know he needs help and I do try but really don't know how far over the line I should step without causing any more problems than I already have.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I can't keep going on this way.
