This is my first time on here and I am not sure where to start but am desperate for help. My parents live in a rural setting and are physically isolated. My mother is physically ill and disabled and my father has all the sypmtoms and behaviour of fronto-temporal dementia.
His behaivour has become increasingly worse and at a rappid rate. recently he he accused my mother of having affairs and has said all the familly are conspiring against hi, this had lead to my mother cutting herself off from the familly to calm my father down. He is so abusive to her and now has cut her off from her support network. The house they live in needs a lot of maintenance and my mother has been trying to keep up with it despite her physical disabilities but when we mention moving house my father goes crazy. He has accused everone of stealing from him. He tells my mother he will move then laughs in her face an hour later saying it will never happen. He hoards things all over the house and keeps spending all thier money on junk. The garden looks like a scrap yard but he refuses to let anyone move anything. He has accused me of calling him a murderer when i have said no such thing and now my mother has ask i stay away too as she cant deal with the aftermath of any visitors.
I am so worried about my mother as my fathers illness has made him so mean and he is slowly cutting her off from everyone and to all tense and purpose is keeping he a prisoner and hostage in thier home.
I have no idea what i am meant to do or how i can help but i know i can not let it continue or they will end up dead before the year is out.
