Has any other carers had experience with loved ones refusing home/daycare ? What has been your solution ? My father has been diagnosed with AD for a good few years now. He has always been of a suspicious nature and won't take any advice from anyone, he does take his medication though. My mother would like a breather and a few minutes for herself but he categorically refuses to go to the day centres, he runs away once at the door (literally), kicks up a fuss, gets aggressive, sneaks out, the police get involved etc. He thinks everyone wants to lock him away. He is behaviour is getting very wild, he sneaks out of the windows at home, goes to see the neighbours telling them about those 2 men (maybe his reflection ?) He uses his few words to talk about those 2 people, is it his parents ? He is on tranquilisers but they don't have much effect, he is still quite hyperactive, he could be starting on mood stabilisers too. Has anyone else had any similar experience ? i'm sure the disease will progress and the daily home situation won't get any better. A volunteer befriender does come round from the local Alzheimer society which is helpful but only 2hours a week. Has anyone used any professional skilled nurses at home ? Thank you for your replies.
