Hello,my wife has advancing vascular dementia and we have a team of carers who come for an hour every morning and night to help washing ,dressing and application of barrier creams etc,they also come for longer periods some days to give me a break. Recently my wife has been agressive to them when they try to help her,and last night she would not let them near her,to help undress. After an hour I said to let her go to bed with her clothes on,this is the first time for this to happen. This morning she was a bit better and let the carer help. She is OK with me and usually calms down,but not last night. I am waiting for our GP to call me,to see if there is some medication that may help. She was on a low dose of mild anti-depressant but the pschiatiric doctor at the assessment hospital took her off these after ten days,but that was several months ago. We try to get out and about as much as possible,and also have a large garden which one of the carers will help with ,"assisting" my wife. Has anyone got any answers to help with this agression problem?
