    . My father is 77 years old. Dad suffered two strokes in a short period of time. He recovered very well. He lost his licence and has become obsessed with getting it back. He has literally said he would end his life if he can't drive. I am convinced my father has alzeimers and have made an appointment for him to be evaluated . His doctor suspects a dimentia related illness. Do I tell my dad what we already suspect and shatter his hope of driving?
