I placed my mom in LTC and she is now hitting and punching the staff when she has to get up and when she has to be changed and anything. She does have a UTI and they are talking about putting her in geropsych for medication adjustment. Is this normal? I’m scared for her to go to geropsych. I don’t understand why she is hitting and punching the staff so much. I can’t even not go over there or have a day off because of her behavior. Please help me feel better about Mom going to geropsych for a few weeks. Does anyone know what they do to the patients there ?
