why so many calls

My brother has been schizophrenic for the past 39 years. he has been in and out of many care type facilities. Over the past year or so he has started to strike people with his fist or hand or an object. he went 37 years without ever doing that and now for whatever reason he does it several times a week.
I get a phone call from his current facility every time he does this.
Its been a long 39 years of coping with his illness. Do they really need to call me 4 times a week? What am I supposed to do ?
He has 6 other living brothers and sisters and they for the most part pretend he does not exist.
