Our father has alzheimers and -- to cut a long story short - we had to take the awful step of putting him into a home at the weekend. He is fighting like never before and becoming more aggressive by the day. He is actually making himself ill he is so distraught. He is on medication now (aricept equivalent). He cannot go home as he is not safe - are there other medications? How do we quickly get a solution as the home may throw him out if he carries on fighting this and we dont know what else to do - if he gets sectioned and put into an EMI home - that would be awful. We desperately want him to stay in the home we have selected but they wont be able to keep him if he carries on trying to escape/being rude etc. Does anyone know a private or otherwise person who specialising in Dementia?? help!
