    As some of you may know my husband has been on a complex needs ward for 4 months.
    This came about after I asked his doctor for help to calm him down as he was anxcious and worried all the time.
    She refused medication saying he needed to be in a care home, so we did this with the result that five days later he was sectioned and sent to hospital.
    The same doctor was the consultant on this ward and she has approved different drugs for him until we found the one that suited him.

    He is now a different man, calm and begining to know his family again.
    He talks a load of rubbish sometimes but thats okay he`s happy in his own world.

    He is now ready for discharge and I feel that I can cope with him at home and they have agreed to let me try as long as I have a package in place from SS.
    To say that I am a happy bunny is an understatement.
    So for once a happy post:)
    Wish me luck
    Love Roseann X

    Dear friends
    Thanks for all your good wishes I do appriciate them.

    I must admit I am feeling pretty good at the moment and hope it lasts

    Almost forgot to say `J`s named nurse even copied his notes for me to read at home so that I could see how they handled him and said if I needed any advice just ask.
    Absolute angels everyone of them.
    Love Roseann x

    Hi Roseann,
    What a lovely positive post! I'm so glad it's all going so well, and how lovely to hear that the nurse has been so helpful. A stark contrast to when my Dad was admitted to our local general hospital, where the staff seemed to have no idea how to handle people with dementia. It just shows that our loved ones need to be in the right setting.
    Good luck to you,
    Sue xxx

    Hi Rose - I am just in and saw your post first - what a pleasure to 'feel' your happiness. I know you have excellent family support, so along with a good package, it all sounds wonderful (says me with a tinge of envy :eek:)..

    Thrilled for you. Love
