My grandmother (85) has pretty severe dementia. Recently we got her into a care facility which we thought would be a big help for us. She is a very sweet and caring person, especially to her family and loved ones. But when she is in a environment that she is not used to, she gets nervous and angry. This is something she obviously can't help. She has been at the new center for less than a week (we knew the first week would be the hardest) and we just got word that she has been sent to a psych ward. This has made me extremely angry. I feel as though if she was sent to a dementia care facility, they should know how to deal with her when she acts out. Putting her in a psych ward would only make things worse and more confusing for her. She doesn't weigh more than 100 pounds, she's not going to be able to hurt anyone! Does anyone have any advice on this topic, or even similar experiences. If you knew my grandmother, you would know that there is no reason what so ever that it should have escalated like this.
