Hello there, My Dad has suddenly developed challenging behaviour. (aggression/climbing out of windows/going out through a fire escape/shouting to passers by I am being kidnapped) They say it is a decline in my Dad's vascular dementia. I think he has realised he is not going home (constantly trying to get home) so he has gone none compliant and when pushed to do things he lashes out in sheer frustration. The current nursing home have prescribed medication to treat his high level of anxiety/depression. They feel he is not suitably placed and I agree now. I am seeking an alternative home and am awaiting a nursing assessment to determine whether he is EMD/EMI. The move is going to be traumatic, thats if I can get him there as he will just think he is going home when he leaves the current care home. What on earth do I do? It is so distressing and upsetting.
