Hi, after a really turbulent few months my 84 year old dad was admitted to a residential care home. This followed a series of admissions to A&E after falls, UTI's etc. The last fall a week ago. I managed to get dad assessed and he failed the capacity test. We were then tasked with finding a suitable care home which we were lucky to find. On Friday the hospital discharged him to the care home. Whilst in hospital dad was very agitated, ringing me and saying that he was getting out. We had hoped that his behaviour was due to the hospital environment but sadly he continues to behave in the same manner. Telling us that he's not staying, wants to go home. Calls me mainly in the afternoon and evening demanding that I collect him. He has packed his bag every day. Tried to call for a taxi, fortunately we had suspended his taxi account and subsequently removed the contact number from his phone. We are exhausted with trying to cope with his behaviour. I have spoken to our mental health team who advised we speak in the first instance with the care home and should they want imput then they can request them to visit. They also say that it can sometimes take several weeks for someone to settle. I have read various forums and see that my dads behaviour is not unique. If anyone can offer any advice as to how we his family deal with the behaviour that would be helpful. I read that sometimes letting the person settle in without daily visits can help as we are constant reminders of his previous home life. Again anyone's thoughts would be appreciated. Dealing with Dementia isn't new to me as sadly my mum had the illness and lived in a care home for 3 years until she died in April this year. My mum was always quite content and I think felt the home provided safety. However my dad is a very different character, still thinks he is safe and able to live independently, doesn't see any danger and can't see risks that he poses to himself. Thanks for taking the time to read.
