((((((Hugs))))))The protective services man is way out of line. Have you documented these episodes? The more obective you can be in presenting the picture to professionals, the better.Do you have a doctors diagnosis regarding the dementia? I am so glad that your brother took your mum to his home. It is time that this nightmare stops for her, and all for of you. Hopefully the lawyer will give good advice as to how best to get your father the help that he needs. It does sound like he needs to be placed in full time care. Social workers at a hospital may be able to do an evaluation. You could look into that for the future. Sounds like you need go over the head of that man from APS with some documentation about the decisions he is making. As I said, there is a solution. Praying for peace and right decisions. Keep posting! (((((((hugs)))))) Joan

((((((marylee)))))) I am from the other thread. Do let us know what happens. Have you spoken to social services in your community? Your father needs treatment for the dementia. Have you talked with his doctor, or even your doctor for ideas? more ((((((hugs))))))
