My brother went missing for two weeks. He just up and left right after my mom had gone off to work. He was gone for two whole weeks wandering around a huge park with no food or water in the heat and rain. Now the hospital may be discharging him today if he is medically cleared (psychiatrist already cleared him pft) and we don’t know what to do. My mother is going to quit her job to take care of him because she doesn’t want this to happen again. But she is worried he will slip out when she sleeps. I worry he will harm her since he has not been stabilized and is talking strangely over the phone. It has happened before. He has come back from being missing and hurt my mother and I. Other than putting alarms on the doors/windows we don’t know what else to do. We also worry he’ll easily figure out how to turn them off before leaving through the window like he has before. My mother was suffering a lot while he was gone and we were looking for them. I don’t want that ordeal again. We want to take him to a psych hospital so that they could keep him for a while to get him on meds and stabilize him but he may refuse or they may not take him.
I am so anxious right now. Does anyone have any suggestions of what else we can do?
