Hi reading all your posts helps me to have some insight into how my dad who suffered a bi in September may be feeling. He is currently in a rehab unit and communication is his biggest problems. Recently we have found he has not taken his medication, hiding it from the nurses, the staff have been unaware of this and tell us they can't make him take it - although I understand this I also find it worrying, he needs to be taking his calming medication and the tablets to help control seizures also they tell us he does not have capacity to make informed decisions about things so therefore surely they have to take some responsibility about him taking the medication he needs???? To be fair I do think there are certain staff that he doesn't particularly like and these are the ones he doesn't take the medication for. Any advice?
