This is my first time posting. I have seen some great advice on here and hoping someone may be able to help (fingers crossed). My mums dementia has really taken over our lives over the past couple of weeks and I feel like we are at a crisis point, especially for my Dad who is her full time carer. My mum has become delusional and no longer recognises my dad and has become very violent towards him a few times, punching him so hard she broken his glasses one time. Unfortunately they have had some bad advice from their GP a couple of months ago who told them to stop mums medication straight away as she was getting headaches from it. So things got much worse from there. They also think that she may have a urine infection but her GP wouldn't give antibiotic until they had a urine sample!! Trying to get sample from my mum was like trying to give a cat a bath. So things have escalated. We did managed to get her medication reviewed to calm her down and she is now on antibiotics (we do however keep finding these around the house so who knows how many she has actually taken). She also keeps leaving the house and walking off by herself. We had met with a couple of care homes and a nursing home who have all said they wouldn't be able to take her in. My dad is exhausted and has hit rock bottom and I just don't know what to do or who to turn to. Has anyone else experienced the "no mans land" where aggression and violence means that you are stuck between a rock and a very hard place?
