I want to start out by saying I live in the desert and it’s supposed to be around 100 degrees today, my grandpa who has been living with my family for about six months would try to go on walks every day to see his wife who lives a couple miles away, who died a couple years ago (he snuck out of the house one day and almost got all the way there!). When we would tell him that she no longer was at their old house he would get mad and tell us he was going to visit her grave. To make matters worse he used to live with his wife and his wife’s daughter who was funneling money out of their social security and who would lock him inside, refuse him food and yell at him. He calls my mom by her name a lot and accuses us of doing things that she used to do. He falls a lot and his refusal to drink water make all of us very uneasy. He has recently taken to walking around our backyard because we told him he can’t keep walking to his wife’s house in the heat (we had to have the cops take him home a couple times because he refused to come home with me or my mom) and he sits in the shade when it gets too hot. The problem is, he wants to sit outside all day and sob because he says we are being mean to him and keeping him from his wife. He refuses to drink water (he will throw the cup in the grass) and he refuses to wear shorts or a tank top. He also tells us he is planning to make an escape to see his wife but to keep it a secret. I guess I’m just wondering what I should do to either get him inside or keep him comfortable outside when he seems to be very mad at us. He is on meds but likes to throw those in the grass because he says we’re trying to kill him/ poison him etc. It looks like he is trying to make the outside his new home, putting his shoes in the shed outside and putting a couple of his shirts draped over chairs. We are going to try making jello for him so he at least has something resembling liquid but I would love any other suggestions or advice. Thank you.
