In brief: Dementia - stubborn

Hopefully, such individuals are still treated with dignity and respect.
Once people can no longer positively contribute to their own well being, medications and the creation of a supportive environment become important.

In brief: I don't know of

Any statistics on this.
In general, "stubbornness" is not a reason for admission to a mental health facility. I suggest that you talk with the doctor about what he hopes to gain from admission.
