Has anyone had experience with aggression and PSP. When dad gets upset over change in routine due to doctors appt or gets over tired or sometimes because he is frustrated because he can't say what he wants to say, he will twist wrists on either me or my mom when we are assisting him in his walking. It doesn't hurt me much but it really bruises mom. I've told him that its okay to be upset but not okay to hurt anyone. His dementia medicine was just increased today. He wanted to go to bed but he gets right back up and when asked where he wants to go, he says bed.
He also wants to sit in his recliner during the day. It's in the living room. He wants it completely quiet, no tv, no radio or music of any kind, and curtain shut so it is dark. He wants me to sit with him while he is in his recliner but I cannot talk or he gets upset.
We recently moved his other recliner into mom and dads bedroom which is right off the living room because when company comes its hard to sit in the dark . The holiday is coming and one of my dads oldest friends is flying in this week, so I left the curtains open today and suggested that when he wants to take a nap or rest (he says "quiet time"), we cam help him into his bedroom and he can either lay in his bed or sit in the recliner so that it would be quiet and dark. He became angry and when mom leaned over to give him a kiss he grabbed her wrist and twisted it so hard that mom screamed out.
He is on a waiting list for the VA home but I was hoping to be able to keep taking care of him at home.
I'm hoping someone has some advise to help with this issue.
Thank you so much
