My mother in-law has been taking care of her husband that has dementia. Up until this last week its been hard but manageable. He recently held her hostage in their home and attacked her. This resulted in her calling the police and them taking him to the hospital. The hospital says that they can only keep him for a few days. There is NO way he can go back to the house for fear that he'll hurt her. What are her options. She has no income except her SS and cannot afford to pay for a home to put him in. The VA says that they have a waiting list.
Needing some kind of place to start.
