    My father became violent with my sister today, and punched her. She sat on him until the ambulance/police arrived, at which point he calmed down. He has gone voluntarily to hospital. We are concerned that he will be violent towards my mother in future and so are reluctantly going to ask for him to be kept in hospital to be assessed.

    I am at work, unable to do anything, and I wondered what happens during assessment and afterwards.

    I would be grateful for any comments.

    Russell, my Mum also went voluntarily to a psychiatric ward to be assessed after constantly trying to get out of the house due to her saying she was frightened of my Dad.

    She was there for around 2.5 weeks while they regulated her medication. When she came out she was like a changed person, no paranoia or fear of my Dad.

    Thanks for this. I am glad your Mum and Dad were helped by the assessment.

    My father is now calm and a mild tranquiliser has been suggested to help him. They are also trying to find him a place in respite so that my mum can have a proper rest.

    Russell
