Hello, I am new to this site and I am hoping to get help with my father's newest problem...I had to place him in assisted living and now he is acting out in a sexual way. A nurse called today to tell me he needed to be evaluated by a psychiatric nurse to address this problem. I have no idea what to do. I am so embarrased by his behavior which is silly I know but I am a nervous wreck! Does anyone have any experience with this problem.View Thread
cjh1203, Thank you for the support! I feel so alone and frustrated. A psychriatric nurse did an evaluation on Friday but I have not heard from the doctor yet and the weekend was really bad. He wasn't allowed into the dining room on Sunday. Unfortunately I chose a place that doesn't communicate with me. I am looking to move him but...I just don't know what I am doing.
