Thank you so much for the welcomeWelcome to TP Kylie. You've come to the right place for advice and support.
People with dementia are sometimes not helped by being in hospital. It's brave of you to have her for three weeks and hopefully she'll have some pleasure with the family during that time and you will have a chance to think about where she should live in future.
Bear in mind that aggression is sometimes a phase that people go through. Sometimes they become a lot calmer when that phase is over. I hope this will be the case woth your mum.
Thanks Shedrech, yes I think you are right it is more that he cant make sense of what is going on, and to be honest neither can I most of the time because I put my logic on what he does and say and I know that really hes not living with my logic now, I just want him to be happy and content and I'm not sure if he will be again.Morning strugling
a warm welcome to TP
you're absolutely right - this forum is a godsend to me and many others - so I'm sorry you have the need to post but so glad you found us - write whatever and whenever, there'll be plenty of sympathy and information in response
your family has been through a tough time and in no way are any of you failures - you're standing by your dad - so please, no guilt
maybe think instead of him 'refusing to admit' there's anything wrong, that actually and sadly, now his brain is compromised so that he is no longer capable of grasping what is going on with him - I found that when I changed my thinking, I could accept myself that my dad's changes in behaviour were because of the disease/dementia and so he had no control over them - so now I can howl at the disease not at my dad
read a lot here and post as often as you like
