what about violent behavior?
Community Member August 21, 2007
I have been reading online looking for some help for my sister who is taking care of her husband. He was diagnosed with early onset last spring and is becoming violent quite often. He just turned 60 years old, in excellent physical health and much stronger than my sister. I haven't found anything specific about this symptom and how to deal with it best. He is under doctor's care & taking medications. At what point should she look for other options other than taking this abuse while caring for him herself? She lives across the country from me, but stays in touch as much as time allows. I fear she is risking her own health & safety and don't know how to help her. Any suggestions from anyone who has had this happen to them would be appreciated.
