My father has just been diagnosed with Dementia. OH! how disheartening this is to see him literally go from one a sharp mind to almost infantile stage. He wandered off a few days ago and of course, I got the scare of my life. After finding him thankfully still alive, he had fallen flat on his face with swollen eyes, fractured nose, bruises and abrasions...things that can be treated. He was hospitalized and now ready for discharge. Only to find out he is not ready to go to Rehab. They have suggested a Geriatric Psych Hospital for evaluation. OMG, how devestating that was for me to hear that and the two hospitals suggested are both about 45-60 minutes away. I really don't know how I feel right now...numb I guess, but what do I do? Anybody out there can help me with this or offer comfort if they have gone through this...please...thank you in advance.
