My mother is in a home for the last 7 years. In the last month her behavior has changed dramatically. She has become very angry to the point that she punches walls, throws and breaks anything and everything. She flushes anything down the toilet ex: flowers, pull ups etc. What can I do at this point?View Thread
Thank You Carol for your reply. She does have constant urinary tract infections but is treated for it every time. We are waiting to see A specialist for the infections and also waiting for a psychiatrist evaluation. She gets her violent outbursts usually around late afternoon and they have her on medications twice a day for calming her but doesn't help much. I will check the links you sent me .Thanks for all of your help.View Thread
