What is a polite thing to say to people who want to visit an Alzheimer's patient, but I don't want them here?
My husband cannot communicate, no speech, no head nodding yes or no. Relatives of his insist upon visitng so they can hug him, talk to him. He does not hug. He sits for a few minutes and then hes gone....to sleep, to watch tv. These are people whom he really never cared for when he had all his senses. He would tell me he really wanted nothing to do with them, never liked them, and would prefer no association with them. I do not care for them either. I do not want them in the house. I tell these people he would not know them anyway. What is a polite/nice way to tell them NO WAY, not gonna happen????
