Dementia, unable to manage bank account, no reasoning skills, hostility. Treatment?

My mother has so many symptoms of dementia . I cannot get her to go to a doctor. She is 91 in Sept., I have recently had to take her car away, and start to manage her bank account. She cannot reason on anything, and is openly hostile toward us. We are not welcome around her. What do I do if she won t hear of seeing a physician. She badly needs to, and we need help.

Psychiatrist 's  Response

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Public Forum

First you have to realize that Dementia is a very disabling illness. There is no treatment which can relieved full symptoms.

Dementia frequently associated with behavior and psychotic symptoms, apart from memory loss. To control these symptoms you can meet nearby psychiatrist. If she is not ready to visit doctor, you can arrange for home visit. Anti psychotic treatment and good nursing care will help in her symptoms.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Wish you Good Health.
