My father thinks we are all being brainwashed by the doctors because there is nothing wrong with him. We transferred him from a geriatric hospital straight to a high care nursing home a few months ago without being able to discuss it with him as he was too delusional at the time. Covert drug intervention and excellent care from the nursing home has improved him out of sight (physically and mentally) but now he is asking questions about when he is going home and how he is going to get out. We told him about his brain damage and he now is trying to prove to us he is ok by reliving his horrific childhood and blaming that on his condition ("my alzheimers is a special kind"). He personality has always been abusive and narcissistic and the medication has been a blessing. I hate to see him tortured but he begs us every time we go not to believe the doctors but to believe in him. He seems to have a bit of short term memory because he remembers our visits and talks about them with my other siblings. But he can't answer or use a phone, pees in a cup because he can't work the toilet out, wears a nappy, can't dress himself easily, can't find his way back to his room without visual cues, forgets our names sometimes and the names of foods and places. We want to be there for him and bring him the things he needs but I can't go through this every time I visit because I don't have the answers. I think I am going crazy because he brainwashes me every time I go in there. It would be my worst nightmare to feel wrongly imprisoned with no one to understand me and that's what wakes me in the middle of the night! Anyone got any ideas on how to get it through to dad that he needs to be in a nursing home? PS. I live in Australia, I couldn't use our zip codes on your profile set up.
