What can I expect as dad's dementia progresses?
Dad was recently sent home after spending many days in the hospital, then many more at a nursing facility for post-op rehab.. He had early-stage dementia when he left, but now that he's home, his condition is much worse.. He has been home for 2 weeks and shows signs of depression and extreme confusion..
I am hoping he adjusts, but how do I know if he is going through a period of adjustment or if the dementia is getting worse..? I feel he no longer wants to be of this world.. What are your experiences at the end of the disease, and what can I expect..?
Thanks all, this is very helpful and therapeutic..
