FIL is verbally abusive to MIL who is handicapped due to open heart surgery and then stroke and hip replacement. Getting more agitated daily. He doesn't sleep so she cannot sleep because he never stops talking. How do you go about getting someone in for a geri psych evaluation?
My mom was attacking my dad physically and verbally, hiding his important things, hiding her own things, rummaging through drawers at 3 am, losing her cane, cup, glasses, slippers, repeatedly, called the sheriff to my parents house telling them my dad is trying to kill her, on and on. Now, on the new medication and in a structured environment at AL, she’s 100% better and happier too. She was diagnosed with moderate dementia and depression.
Look online for a Geri Psych near you!!!! Good luck!!!
No cure, just amelioration. Either find a geripsych, or find a geriiatrician who understands meds.
