    Hi Caring a
    Didn't want to read and run. I don't have too much experience of this, but it would be worthwhile talking to you mum's GP if you have POA. If they are aware of the aggressive episodes there are things they can do to help, including checking for infections, adjusting medication etc.

    You could also speak to the care company as they must be used to coping with behaviour like this and perhaps there are other steps they could take to help.

    I'm sure other TPers will be along very soon with their experience and advice

    Hi, caring a. I'm sorry to hear about the situation with your mother. I don't have direct experience of your situation but am sure others here have, and will have some suggestions for you.

    You have probably thought of this already, but if it's been a sudden change in behaviour or personality or onset of aggression, this can often be a sign of a UTI (or other infection or problem). It couldn't hurt to get this checked out.

    It might also be time to have her medication assessed and possibly changed?

    Best wishes to you.
