I am conservator of my brother who is 37 years old and has severe CP. Currently, his attitude and personality has changed drastically. He does live in a group home and isn't able to tell me what's bothering him. He's been in this group home for over 15 years and we've never had a problem. He developed spinal meningitis when he was 8 months old and has CP since then.
My question is this: Could this have anything to do with CP? Has anyone experienced moodiness and personality change with their child/family member who has CP? I am trying to check out all possibilities and am very concerned.
I have already started visiting him more frequently and each time a different day and time of the day. I am noting all staff that is there and how he reacts to them and me. My brother has always been very friendly and loving to everyone especially me. I am praying hard to figure this out. I had another family member who suggested it could be a side effect of a medicine or just his personality changing as he's getting older.
I would appreciate any suggestions or if any of you have experienced anything close to this.....please help.
