I'm at my wits' end. My Dad has been in an ALF since September 2013 (after my Mom's death). He has been accusing other residents and now the housekeeper of stealing from him. Everything he claims is stolen is found in his room where HE has hidden it (in his hamper wrapped in towels, in the pocket of his closet clothes, in socks, etc.) but he still is adamant that things are being stolen. He recently physically attacked and cursed the housekeeper because he's getting so caught up in this. He was sent to the hospital immediately after that incident for a physical and psych exam. Physically he was fine, but Psych determined that his dementia is getting dramatically worse. They prescribed a limited use sedative prescription for days that he is extremely agitated (which seems like every day). I visit him every weekend (I work during the week) and each weekend I dread it more and more. The entire duration of my visit is filled with nasty accusations of the housekeeper and the retelling of each and every item he believes has been stolen. As I said, we find everything in his room (except the water, which he is drinking but obviously can't remember). He still insists that the housekeeper stole it and hid it himself. I'm becoming completely demoralized and am considering visiting less for my own mental health. My sister lives out of state and will not be visiting so it's just me who goes to see him. I have tried to steer him toward a new conversation but all he can focus on is his belief that someone has a conspiracy against him to steal everything he has. Any ideas would be very welcome. Thanks in advance.
