Ok, this is about trazadone! Mom's been on 100 mg before but she is on 50mg right now! Last Friday I asked them to increase it to 100 so she sleeps at night and doesn't wander! They have not called me back and I told them I was giving her the 100 mg on Friday when I called! They lodged a complaint with the Human Services Investigator saying that I was trying to dope her to make it easier to deal with her! She was up and dressed and coherent when the lady saw her! I have yet to get an ok from the doctor..... No call back! Five business days! The lady who came by said she needed to be in a facility! I told her I've been trying to tell dhs that! She takes swings at me, but because I am here 24/7, DHS just wanted to have caregivers come in! Once the DHS case worker found out I was going to move in the near future and I would tell her in advance, all of a sudden she said that mom would be in a facility! Heaven forbid they have to do the checking in and work it'd take to keep caregivers here! But it was ok to put all that in my lap! I won't have a caregiver here because it would be a dangerous situation for the caregiver! I called the caseworker at the hospital when mom punched me! I was told to call the police when she hit me, so I did! I was told that because I left her on the floor (15 minutes max! I couldn't lift her where she was because she could have been hurt!) that I could be arrested for that! The doctor has prescribed 2 dementia medicines to her, both I stopped giving her because they made her violent! So now I have to worry about them kicking myself and my friend out and they're going to have a Medicare interviewer contact us in approx. 48 hours! Do I get a lawyer? Btw- still no call back from the doctor! I've called numerous times! Good thing I have a recorder on my phone, huh? There's an app for that!
Has anyone else gone through this kind of stuff with DHS, doctors, ect. and do I need to get a lawyer? Thank you everyone! To those here who I've told to avoid caring for badly behaving elders, now you know why! God bless you all and thank you! 😟
