My heart goes out to you, Erin, as I have just recently trodden the same path. My Dad was admitted to hospital a month ago, he just became so aggressive, and I could not manage him. It got so I was sleeping with one eye
open and my foot on the floor. Soooo, having been the second time, the Police had to be summonded, they accompanied us to emerg, where they held him for 72 hours, observation. The consensus amongst all doctors was, he'd have to be placed. I had spent two solid years standing firmly against institutionalization. It broke my heart. I would not bring him home, it would just add to the confusion. I go there to see him, I also get him and take him to see his wife in another home, about
twice a month.
