How do you get help for 39 yr old man who refuses to go to the Dr.? His problem has always been ignored by his parents. He was is special ed. He can't hold a job, he lies all the time, go into rages if he doesn't get his way. His mother puts money on a money card for groceries (he lives with me/nephew). He brought roaches with him and tells me he's keeping his room clean,etc.. I checked his room and found old dirty cereal bowls, open food packages, molded tea all hidden. Then raged cause I went in his room. He doesn't think anything is wrong with him. He's schizophrenic. HELP
Hi Layla, he should be living in an assisted living home. He clearly is not functional and potentially dangerous. His psychiatrist should be made aware of the level of his dysfunction.
You need to lay down rules that he is not to have food or drink in his room and that while he is in your house, under your roof that room inspections are not something voluntary but mandatory. He has to be seen to take his medication rather than take his word for it (take it, then take a drink of water and then watch him for 5 minutes).
Good luck with him.
