My father has for the past eight months had more and more 'episodes' of general erratic behaviour. He is 83, it came to a head when he was 'arrested' for refusing to leave a bank. To cut a long story short he has now been in a NHS EMI unit for the past 5weeks. He has been sectioned to keep him there. My problem is that we have found and paid for a really lovely care home with a secure purpose built EMI unit but as he is sectioned and his medication is still not sorted they will not let him leave. Also, I feel the longer he is in hospital the worse he is getting - has anyone ever come across this - is he getting worse becuase of enforced stay or is this a natural progression of the diease. He is often accroding to the nurses angry and aggresive although i never see it. He still talks well although nothing makes any sense. I feel very guilty that i have 'left' him there. Thnks.
