My Dad was diagnosed with vascular dementia 2 years ago. before he got dementia my Dad did verbally and physically abuse my mum for all their married life. Now he is sick he is almost impossible to manage as he is aggressive and angry all the time. My mum is not coping. He will and does refuse his meds/food and help. He has refused power of attorney. He was sectioned but they released him after 10 days back to my mum with promises of support. That support is almost non-existance. Basically, I am worried about both my parents. Mum is in a state and can no longer cope. Dad will not cooperate and I am concerned for both their safety as he is very angry about being sectioned and can be very vindicive. We need to have him placed in care against his will to keep him and mum safe. We need a power of attorney granted to my mum so that she can make the medical and financial decisions that need to be made. Any advice?
