Hi all, hope you are all well. Finally dad has to leave the care home that he is in.
Basically long story cut short. He flipped again yesterday, hit a care worker in the side, ran around with a fire extinguisher saying that there was a fire and they could either die by fire or die by his hand
Then went into the hallway broke a picture frame with glass and was trying to attack people with that. It took three police officers to calm him down
I got there just as it was all finishing off and was still there in the late hours. The poor CH manager was beating her head against a brick wall trying to get the EDT Team out to assess dad as the police were saying that he needed to be sectioned and was at risk not to just him self but to other residents.
I agree with her and we should never of put him there in the first place, but it's done.
Had a meeting this morning with the outreach team and they are now saying they think that a care home will not be able to cope with him and he will end up in a mental health unit.
I said to them in the meeting that it is now their decision and it has to be taken out of my hands. Of course I will work with them and go with dad to whatever place he is going to end up and settle him in (that will be fun ) but I am no way putting him in my car and driving him there.
Anyway just waiting for the meeting to finish and wait to hear his fate
