Dad lives in France on his own, has very few friends, so is quite isolated. His French is not good, so communication is difficult.
He often says the images he sees, remind him of myself and my sister when we were children. He says they can be disruptive, knocking things over in the house and climbing over everything. He is also seeing these images when he is out in his car which is worrying. He is also ringing friends and family during the night, thinking it is daytime.
He gets confused with the clock, we have said to look at his laptop or mobile phone for the real time, but he is convinced the images tamper with the time
We are in contact with a couple that he is friends with and they keep us up to date and are wonderful with my dad, they live nearby and try to help as much as possible.
We would like to bring dad to the UK to live, but have nowhere for him to stay whilst trying to get him help. He owns his property in France, but unfortunately ran the property down and it's unsellable.
Dad seems unaware of his mental state and thinks we are making things up, so this makes it difficult to make him see sense.
He has said several times that he wants to come back to the UK to live, I have tried to talk to him about his finances, to see if he can support himself for a while, but he is reluctant to tell me anything.
I would really appreciate some advice on how we could get dad the help he desperately needs, along with accommodation.
