She has become aggressive and delirious. She supposedly smacked the caregiver on the arm last night and now the agency has canceled contract. I have another person that comes 3 days a week but otherwise I’m stuck here. I’m so overwhelmed I can’t think straight. Trying to find nursing home but they want to know about behaviors. I am POA but not guardian. She says she won’t leave and says this is her house. What do I do? I did this because we never got along and I wanted this chance if only for a short while to bond and try to make memories. She is furious everyday when I leave after caregivers arrive which causes the bad behavior. She says it’s my job to sit with her 24/7. Help!

more good advice….will do so next week. Many thanks.

You need to get Mom to a neurologist. There are meds for aggressive behaviour. Check for UTI.

Not a sudden change but getting worse. She always has UTI. Got letter from her doc today that he’s quitting. Have appt at end of month with center for healthy aging but I might not survive that long. On transport to ER, they might admit for psych evaluation but need medical reason to admit otherwise and then I could get her transferred to NH as I understand. Great suggestions though that help me focus on resolution and I do appreciate you for that!

IF this is a sudden change in her mental status, you need to get her tested for a UTI rIght away.

Have you spoken to her doc about her suddenly aggressive behavior?

Have you consIdered calling 911 and askIng for transport to the ER as she is a danger to others?
