Saw mums geriatrician today gosh hes just so nice!! (married damn it) anyway i got to speak to him alone and he said shes still competent to make her own decisions and that she will get worse soon and then it will be easier for her to decide her future? He said to keep her in with the shrinks as we will need them to evaluate her in the future and that i need them to make decisions with family.
He said theres not alot they can do until she proves shes a danger to herself BUT if i was going to leave that NO she cannot live alone and this is where the shrinks take over?
He said something will happen as shes not taking care of herself but theres nothing you can do just be prepared for things to get worse.
He hugged me! Drooooool and said you are not alone we are all here to help BUT shes still a very competent woman in the eyes of the medical profession and we have to respect her choices for now but it will get easier for her to be placed when the illness progresses!
So ive learnt alot today i am not going to worry as if she falls or whatever theres nothing i can do but something will have to give and then it will be easier for her to be placed.
So i think things are just going to get worse before she becomes more passive?
Yep my hands are tied so we wait and see in the meantime i will have to keep records for shrinks!
He wasnt shocked about her behaviour or aggression he said yes this wll get worse before it gets better BUT if any violence then call an ambulance and she will be placed and sectioned almost immediately.
