My mom and I made it up to see my dad this afternoon. He looked pitiful but got in a chuckle or a smile every now and again. I spoke with the director, caregivers, and his PCP. I was surprised to learn that by law the doors to the courtyards must remain unlocked at all times for the residents. However, now they are alarmed so whenever a door is opened, the caregivers get a notification and someone responds immediately to make sure all is well. I saw the new protocol in action while we were there. I was amazed at how often people go outside. It was discovered that my dad has a UTI which can explain his recent irratic behavior and he is on antibiotics. Hopefully that will help him feel better and calm down soon. They are keeping a good eye on him and felt very bad about what happened. I was happy to see some positive resolutions taking place.
I Found God today in positive resolutions.
