Your Dad would need to be sectionable before he could be removed from the house against his will , I have known a lady who moved into council accommodation ( she and her husband owned their house ) because of a situation similar to your parents .Hi All
My Dad is on medication, after the incident happened, my brother contacted his psychiatric case worker who visited immediately and had promised to contact my brother to update him on the outcome of the visit. This being to change his medication. Unfortunately we haven't heard from them. They did promise to bring forward a scheduled visit from the consultant who is due to see him on the 12th January but we haven't heard from them.
My parents own and live in the house they bought when they moved to Bolton 48 yrs ago. Unfortunately their financial situation is such that they will have to fund everything from their savings and property equity.
Does anyone have experience of putting someone in residential care that is refusing to go as they do not believe there is anything wrong with them? Any advice on how to do this?
We moved my mother without discussing it with her at all, for the simple reason that she would have refused point blank to go. According to her there was nothing wrong with her, but she was very bad by then - could not longer even make herself a cup of tea, was not washing, hardly eating, short term memory non existent, etc. She had had a bad fall - of which she had no recollection whatever - and the need had become urgent.Does anyone have experience of putting someone in residential care that is refusing to go as they do not believe there is anything wrong with them?

Hi LesleyI don't think there are many carers there who are in the same situation, with an aggressive husband/wife. Most of the sufferers are very placid and uncommunicative unlike my Dad who just wants attention all the time and starts to behave like a child or starts to torment my Mum if he isn't receiving any attention.
