Hi All My FiL has vascular dementia. He just turned 59. He has been diagnosed the last 3 nearly 4 years and has lived at home all the time. We knew he was becoming violent/aggressive but the MiL refused to put him in a home and we decided to respect her choice. My reason for posting is this: last week we found out my MiL has terminal cancer. No treatement, just a matter of time. She is 61. My FiL was immediately removed to a dementia care home on a permanent basis. He has visited the home several times before for respite care and seemed to enjoy himself there. Unfortunately today Social Services rang (they are in charge of his care as he is subject to NHS continuing care and is fully funded) to say he is too violent and aggressive and they need to move him. He's been there 6 days. What is going to happen? Where can they put him? Does anyone have any experience of this? I've read that sectioning can be an option if they are incredibly aggressive and a danger to themselves and others. He is a physically strong man and we are concerned this may be the way they need to go in the end. Hopefully we're just being too pessimistic but with so much going on it's hard to find positives. Any advice or even a random thought gratefully received!
