Hi my father in law has frontal lobe dementia which to those who don’t know affects behaviour making it inappropriate. My mother in law helps to look after him at home and won’t consider a care home, I used to be a carer in community but have a four year old child and work in a&e I do what I can to help them. My father law as part of his dementia and obsessive compulsive behaviour has taken to Gambling on the horses at the bookies, at first he was stealing from his wife and selling things, she tried to stop him gambling but he would get aggressive so we felt it best that he was given small amounts of pocket money to bet and this kept him happy, however now he’s been gradually getting banned from the local betting shops, I went into one today to see why they would only serve him until 1pm and they say it’s because he’s trying to bet on races that have already been run after this time and they don’t have time to help as too busy, (basically I feel they can’t be bothered) there were only four people in there and it was the afternoon, I explained his situation.. also that by them stopping him he is now travelling further and further and is disappearing for longer which is a concern not only for his safety but also for COVID reasons. They didn’t seem that sympathetic and suggested I came back tomorrow to see the manager which I’m going to do. His wife can’t go with him to bet as she has copd and can’t walk far but especially at the moment and prone to chest infections. Anyone got any ideas ?
