My husband of 5 years (he was married before,) went into a very nice board and care memory home a month ago. He was diagnosed with Alzheimers a year ago and became violent and verbally abusive on a daily basis. It finally ended when he would not stop and was shoving me into doors and trying to hurt the cats he used to love so much. He also is an alcoholic. It was a hard thing to do but I knew he was safe and so was I. However, the 3rd day he was there, he started telling the administrator that he wanted to go home and that I was going to pick him up. (He doesn't remember anything he had done the past year) then he called me on the 4th day, and begged me to come get him. He turned ugly and mean when I told him that he could not come home bc I could not care for him anymore. He started threatening me saying I was going to pay and I was stealing his house and money (btw his pension and ss barley cover his care there)
I was told by the person there not to worry about it and at that time I didnt. Today he still makes the threats but forgets about it after awhile. Here is the problem, he wears a foley cathedar. And he has been saying h e needs to go to the hospital to have it changed. He just had it changed a day before he got there. 3 days ago he poked a hole on the bag and was saying he needed bags right away. I gathered up all the bags and equipment that we had here in the house and brought them over to the home. The next day the administrator said she was looking in on him when he was in his room and he was carefully lying down on the floor she started to walk away when he started yelling that he had fallen and needed to go to the hospital. Another attempt to break out. Then a resident witnessed him sticking his fingers down his throat to make it look like he was sick. Here's the worst part. Last night he pulled his foley cathedar out. and every week-end a caregiver comes to give the administrator a break.so he was scaring her saying he was going to have an infection so she would have to call me and order me to take him to the hospital. This was the final straw for me. I broke down on tears and told that caregiver that he had never done that before, and was doing this only to get out of the home and try to get back here. He is also an alcoholic that is another reason. Thankfully the administrator called me and told me she went back to the house and he was fine. My question. How should I handle this? pulling out his cathedar just to get over the white fence is crazy!! He is not my husband anymore I do know that. He went away 6 months ago from this stupid disease. However, I feel like I'm being harassed and beaten up again. What should I do to end this up and down craziness that he is doing to me, and to the people at the home??
