Sorry if this seems a bit disjointed - I'm totally in shock! I just answered the phone and it was the nurse, from Grandad's CH. That immediately set alarm bells ringing, as he's on the residential dementia unit upstairs, the Nursing Home is downstairs. There isn't a nurse upstairs. She said she was just ringing to let me know they've ordered an emergency review of Grandad's meds as he's been getting very agitated in an evening, aggressive and violent towards staff and other residents . She said they've called her up to ask her advice before - she's a Mental Health Nurse, and specialises in dementia. Apparently, he's not been too bad during the day - although he has been wandering in and out of other people's rooms, looking for the things he believes have been stolen. (For the record, nothing obvious has been taken anyway). My Dad goes in at least twice, during the week, in an evening,and usually both days over the weekend, and the only thing they have said - ever - is that he has started to get a bit aggressive, nothing to really worry about, but he'd shouted at a resident, accusing them of stealing. Apparently he's now punched a male carer in the stomach, and a female carer has a bruise on her arm, from him. I've just spoken to his cpn - she was as shocked as me, as it's sooooo unlike him. She's asked them to call out the GP this afternoon, to check for infection. The GP can then prescribe antibiotics, if needed, and might prescribe something to help calm him down a bit. The CPN will then go tomorrow and see him. If there's no infection, they'll organise for the consultant psychiatrist to review him again as a matter of urgency. The other thing that has really shocked me is that, although it is a specialist dementia unit - the staff have no dementia training - they are just normal care assistants. So... I've asked the GP to ring me after htye've seen him, to see what they've found. The CPN will go tomorrow, and Dad will be having a very stern word with the CH manager, about their severe lack of communication. Thanks for reading. I know uit's a long one. I just needed to get that all off my chest. Does anyone have any advice for things we should ask/look for/do?
