Assuming I can get his number. My mom has dementia but before the D word was even a thought she was given Lexapro for anxiety disorder. It doesn't do anything anymore. She was diagnosed with dementia and depression with psychotic overtones and had Seroquel added to her regimen. That calmed her down but she is still depressed yet no one listens to me about the Lexapro. I mentioned it when I had her taken to geriatric psych and its still there. I mentioned it to the first home I put her in which I think was dementia & demented (schizo or something) because some man grabbed me because I ignored her. Right now I have her in a regular nursing home. I mentioned the Lexapro again and the intake person even wrote down to have it looked at. No one told me the psych was there and it was not changed to something else, adjusted or removed. If it's not working it needs to go. I have never gotten this guy's number just a name and when I googled that name it came up someone in Long Beach. That's quite far from where my mom is. We are northwest of LA proper, Long Beach has to be 30+ miles away.
How does one deal with these people. I also want a Spanish speaking psychologist to see my mom because there are some things I worry she is not imagining but reliving. However, I am not allowed to find one and figure out how to get her there because this place is supposed to be providing for all her needs - well its not due to language issues. I also asked about Spanish speaking speech therapy because she is developing aphasia. Same thing, they have an English only speech therapist in house so no go on finding one on my own.
