Had problems with mums bizarre behaviour recently. She lives at home alone still although is moderate to severe dementia, with 4 carers a day and me visiting 3-4 times a day (as well as working full time). She had a heart attack a couple of months ago and now has moderate to severe heart failure. Mum is very strong willed and even at this severe stage says there is nothing wrong with her. The only person she knows now is me. She has mixed dementia but for the past month or so her behaviour had got really bad. She is aggressive and angry all the time, obsessed with me to the point that as soon as I leave she turns verbally aggressive towards, swearing and calling me and her eyes are piercing, and so evil and vindictive when she stares at me. She has tried Risperidone but had a reaction to it, Citalopram in the past and has now been put on Lorazepam small dose day and night. The last week and a half has been horrendous. Mum has started wandering out of the house in the day looking for me. Getting out of bed at night and standing at the front gate drawing attention to herself which makes her vulnerable. I have been called over at night by neighbours on 4 occasions and following a visit from the memory clinic on Tuesday was advised respite. Unfortunately, ,mum will not go without me being there and care homes when assess say they cannot deal with her behaviour at this minute in time. Friday everything came to a head. I slept there Thursday night as she had wandered during the day, was mega agitated and aggressive towards me and was unsafe to be left alone. Urine samples not revealed any infection. Care home came out to assess for admit for respite and felt there was something wrong and she needed admission to specialised unit for assessment. Following this mum was sectioned on section 2 (the most awful experience with 2 doctors and social worker coming to her house) to an Mental Health Unit (over 65`s) for assessment. Has anyone else encountered this and is a mental health unit the right place?? Sorry the post is so long.
