DEMENTIA CARE IN PRISON

MY DAD DENNIS A LOCKHART IS IN PRISON WITH DEMENTIA. PRISON IS A DANGEROUS ENVIRONMENT FOR INMATES WITH DEMENTIA.  IF YOU CAN'T FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS LIKE DROP TO THE GROUND WHEN TOLD SO, THEN YOU GET IN A LOT OF TROUBLE. DEMENTIA INMATES GET BULLIED & HAVE THERE BELONGINGS STOLEN & TAKEN FROM THEM. THEY HAVE NO ONE WATCHING TO MAKE SURE THEY EAT NOR DO THEY CLEAN THEM UP WHEN THEY HAVE AN ACCIDENT IN THEIR PANTS. THEY DIDNT EVEN KNOW DADDY WAS TAKING APART HIS RAZOR AND STICKING THE PIECES IN HIS T.V. UNTIL ANOTHER INMATE CALLED AND TOLD US HOW BAD DADDY WAS GETTING THEN THEY WENT AND CHECKED.  AFTER THAT ONE CHECK THEY NEVER GO BACK TO SEE IF HES OK. WE HAD AN INMATE THAT WAS VERY TRUSTWORTHY CALLING AND UPDATING US ABOUT DADDY. BUT AS SOON AS THE PRISON FOUND OUT THE INMATE WAS CALLING UPDATING US ON DADDY THEY REMOVED THE INMATE SO HE COULDN'T CALL US BACK.  STAFF NOR INMATES ARE PROPERLY TRAINED TO DEAL WITH COGNITIVELY IMPAIRED INMATES. THE PRISON POPULATION IS AGING AND A MAN WHOM IS OR ANY MAN INCARCERATED WITH SUCH ISSUES SHOULD BE RELEASED TO BE HOME SO FAMILY CAN SPEND LAST DAYS TAKING CARE OF THIS PATIENT.  MY DADDY HAS HEART DISEASE, DIABETES,COLON CANCER AND THIS DEMENTIA THAT WE DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT STAGE IT IS. HE HAS DONE 14 YEARS ALREADY , HE IS TO BE RELEASED IN 2021 BUT WE KNOW HE WILL NOT MAKE IT THAT LONG. WILL SOMEONE PLEASE HELP TO GET OUR DAD, PAPA & MY MOMS HUSBAND HOME FOR WE KNOW THESE ARE HIS LAST DAYS AND WE WANT TO LOVE AND CARE FOR HIM THE WAY HE NEEDS. PRISON CANNOT AND DOES NOT TAKE CARE OF THIS AND IF YOU HAVE EVER HAD A FAMILY MEMBER DIAGNOSED WITH DEMENTIA YOU WILL UNDERSTAND. ALSO ALL THE OTHER HEALTH ISSUES HE HAS INTENSIFIES DEMENTIA. I CAN'T SLEEP AT NIGHT WORRIED HE'S GOING TO GET HURT FOR NOT FOLLOWING DIRECTIONS BC THEY JUST DON'T SEEM TO GET IT. PLEASE I CRY FOR YOUR HELP
