Hi! I believe I can be of help with this issue.
First of all, this is an incredible tale of medical history. Not just your brother's but of family medical history! I'm sure you know that, but I had to comment because it was truly amazing to read such a concentrated amount of medical and mental health disorders.
I also hope that you recognize you are asking a somewhat impossible question to answer: on the one hand you are seeking help for your brother (which is very loving and he desperately needs) but on the other, he is unwilling to cooperate with this help and his wife is unwilling to take the steps to get him help. So, that means we can only try.
And I can think of three avenues to direct you to take in getting him help. I don't know how far you can go down these avenues before you hit a dead end. But they are the best we can do at this time.
Avenue #1: Get in touch with NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) in your area, Sauk County. You need to get them involved in helping you get services for him such as tele-doctors or home visits, etc. The contact person I have in my listing for your area is Alice Montemurro at(NNN) NNN-NNNN
Avenue #2: The Sauk County Aging and Disability Resource Center. Trish Vandre at(NNN) NNN-NNNN They are in Baraboo. Again, you want to know what they can do for your brother who is such an extreme case and should qualify for disability services. You are also seeking referral help.
Avenue #3. The Wisconsin Care Planning Council has tele-doctors and other services available. I don't know if in your area. It's mostly for geriatric services but they may be able to help with referrals if not actual service. I looked up their website for you:
So, this is thehelp I can give you and I hope that someone in one of these agencies takes an interest!
But really, as I said at the beginning you know you are asking for what is almost impossible--to help someone who refuses to help and whose wife is willing to go along with him on that. But, these are some possibilities for you...
I wish you and him and the family the very best!
