My Dad, whose Alzheimer’s seems to be progressing very quickly now, has become a danger not only to himself but also my mum. He is trying to throw her out of the house every night and has become more and more aggressive. My mum, who is 80, has her own health issues, isn’t mobile and can no longer cope. We have managed to get the mental health team and a social worker involved now and the SW is very concerned for my mum’s safety. This morning they have confirmed that they will fund 2 week’s respite in a home that specialises with dementia. Trouble is my dad has no insight into his condition and will not go voluntarily which means we are going to have to use a bit of subterfuge to get him there. Looks like Wednesday is the day once the home have been to assess him to make sure they think they can cope with him. Mum however is now worried they are going to send him home again after the 2 weeks is up. They have no savings and the mental health nurse is all for him staying at home despite the fact there are now clear safeguarding issues. My parents don’t have any savings and the only asset is the house. I don’t know which way to turn and I myself have now been signed off work with stress as I try to deal with all this. Any suggestions and shared experience from other members would be appreciated.
