All residents were recently moved to the other side of the center for renovations or so we were told. I was put with an individual who definitely has anger and other antisocial behvioral issues but at first I just chalked it up to dementia or Alzheimer's. The other day, he and I got into an argument after I came back from Physical Therapy learning how to properly use a wheelchair and he was sitting in the hall. We had a fire drill and everyone had to go into their rooms with the door shut. About three minutes later he starts backing up his wheelchair into my half of the room. A little background, when notices went out about the moves and the need to accomodate each other due to the smaller space, I purchased a bluetooth unit and headphones so I could hook up my TV and watch it via headphones so not to bother him as he sleeps a lot. Well back to the fire drill, I saw him backing and then going forward but was watching TV while sitting in my chair per PT orders. Now I know he knows how to use the call button to call the nurse, but he has absolutely no patience. So he keeps backing up right up til he is blocking my view of the TV. I finally take off my headphones and ask him what he needs. He wants the nurse. I told him, he has his call light and to use it, because him calling or me calling will be the same results then he wants to go outside. The doors are closed, I am not able to safely open them and esp. during a fire drill. He than wheels back to his bed but gets mad and starts to try and guilt me saying that I don't want to help him. At that point I just stopped arguing. Tonight I was trying to get to sleep, but his TV was blaring and his big ceiling lamp was on yet he was fast asleep. I didn't want to wake him up so I tried calling the nurse. I thought the light was working because I could see the bright red and it was taking an awfully long time. He woke up while I was waiting and I asked him to turn off his light at the very least. He just looked at me and said "crazy" and went back to sleep. He did this two more times and acknowledged me but had a very indignant look on his face and went back to sleep. So my question is...is this dementia or Alzheimer's or is this just very manipulative behavior? Thank you for reading through all of this.
