Hi I’m new to this, and crying for advice. My Dad has Dementia and has been in a care home since March this year. He initially went on respite as Mum who was taking care of him was admitted to hospital herself. To cut a long story short Mum sadly passed away 3 weeks ago (cancer). So Dad normally mild mannered gentle quiet person, in the last week has become aggressive agitated with the staff in the care home. We have been called to help calm him twice in the last four days. We have of course talked to Dad about Mum’s death and he did visit her with us the day before she passed away. We think he has understood, but how do you really know?? We took him to the funeral again so as to help him understand. He doesn’t communicate well. But has become very withdrawn. Hasn’t mentioned Mum since. Do we continue to talk to him about it. We are very worried about him and at a loss to know what to do to help him. The care home are not being very helpful either I supporting him just seam to treat him as an inconvenience. Both the GP and Social Services are aware and we are getting some support from them. We are grieving ourselves at loosing our Mum but finding this almost worse. Does anyone have any experience or advise please.
