Hello, My granny has quite advanced AZ and my granda has early-moderate VD (with a noted deteriation recently), the problem is that we have care in for my granny from 10am to 7pm mon-fri, which is great because we really want to keep her at home for as long as possible. At the moment we don't require care for my granda and anyway, when the carers are feeding my granny they feed him too, so no problem. However, recently my grandad has been very very confused and doesn't understand that my granny is ill or where they live, since last Thursday he has thrown out 4 of the carers! The carers have been very upset, etc. by it all. Plus it means that my Mum has to drop everything to go and take care of my granny. The problem is we're afraid of him turning violent with the carers and them withdrawing the care that my granny vitally needs, in other words my granda's behaviour is going to jepordise the care my granny gets. Any suggestions on how to handle this..... The Drs say that my Granda is alcohol dependant so that's a problem too, his Gp has told my Mum to put him in to respite for a while but we don't feel he's ready for it yet and if he's in a strange place he goes beserk.....eek! Thanks for listening/reading!! Sony!
