Hi all. I haven't posted for quite some time and had to set up a new profile. Dad has been in AL since July 2014. He was diagnosed with non treatable prostate cancer and has been in hospice care since mid May. I can deal with that issue but I feel his dementia is advancing. I would say since late August he really isn't recognizing me. He hasn't known my name for quite some time but lately when I visit him I stick my face close to his and say hi dad but no acknowledgement what so ever. He hardly talks at times unless he in in the phase of wanting to go home. I ask simple yes/no questions without a response. Any response is very robotic sounding.
The little routines I have had with dad for decades are no longer triggering a response.
Any ideas and suggestions would be helpful to me.
