My father is 68 and I am 25. He developed dementia since nearly a year ago. He has abused alcohol most of his life and is still dependent on it to this day. Since his illness took effect, he as confabulated stories several times about my mother, strangers and myself included. He also has a history of domestic violence and aggression. My mother left him a few months ago because of verbal and physical abuse. I am now his primary caregiver, as there are no other family members able to care for him. However, lately, he has become violent towards me, wanting to start fights in his belligerent states. This behavior was not present up until a few days ago. I manage to deescalate these outbursts, but it is still very distressing. I have thought about calling the cops at times. He has been on anti-depressants, sleep medication and as well as medication for his alcohol dependency (though this has not been very effective). I wish to get my father the help he needs. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.
