After a collapse at home dad was finally admitted to Derby Hospital. He was discharged, safely in my opinion, to a nursing home. Despite settling quite well there his symptoms of aggravation upon interventions escalated and he became violent and unmanageable.
He had to then be admitted to a specialist mental health ward at Chesterfield Hospital. Dad has now been on Linacre ward for 5 months.
His medications have been changed, his behaviour care plans on interventions mean he is less likely to hurt someone or himself and he appears a lot more settled now.
