Since going into care home before xmas Dads has deteriorated quite badly.His mobility is quite poor and he doesn't even seem to register when I'm visiting. When he went into respite as mum was taken to hospital he didn't want to be there and would constantly wander to the door and be verbally abusive although not violent. He was moved because of this to an enhanced unit. The staff seem very caring but I only found out after a few weeks that they were giving him medication twice a day. He has gone from being able to recognise us to sitting either mumbling or sleeping with the occasional chat. The staff were concerned about deterioration and have contacted the GP and navigo as they thought the medication might be too much but when I arrived to see him (I live a long way away so only visit every few weeks) they said he had improved slightly and the GP wasn't too concerned. I really don't know how to approach this as I think they believe if his medication is reduced he will become abusive but are they just turning him into a zombie to mask his behaviour. Is he better off being unaware of his surroundings so hes not upset about it? When he first arrived the staff said he settled in well and never wandered to the door so I'm not sure why he is so medicated.
