Hi all. I'm hopeful of some advice and reassurance about some issues we are experiencing related to my father who has Alzeihmers. He has been in a dementia specialist care home for around a year, but over the last month has started to become more aggressive. This has recently led to him being violent to some of the care workers and also damaging some property. We are currently working through the process of psychiatric assessments and the possibility of him being sectioned, which obviously isn't a pleasent time, but frustratingly, during our discussions with the care home, they have also decided now is the time to tell us that they will be sending a bill for the damaged property and also that one of the care workers was seeking third party advice (presumably legal advice?) about the episode of violence against them. We are focused on the psychiatric assessment at the moment so I didn't want to question the manager on these other statements at the moment. On reflection I don't think either suggestion is reasonable (should the damaged property be covered under the homes insurance? Aren't the home legally responsible for safeguarding the workers and residents in their care?) but I would be grateful of anyone else's views and opinions before I discuss it further with the manager later this week after the psychiatric assessment has been completed?
