My dad, who has dementia (hasn't been diagnosed as LBD, but my own research has me wondering if it is) , moved in with us two years ago, after we lost Mom. At that point, he was still functioning mostly independently and had just given up driving (voluntarily, thankfully!). Over the past two weeks, he has gradually been getting worse in his reasoning, remembering, and coherent communication, and hallucinations and paranoia have gradually increased. However, over the past two weeks, it seems as though each day brings a new problem or change. He has become mean and belligerent, complains about most everything, and accuses me of horrible things. I've come to dread each new day, wondering what new, awful change I'm in for. What is going on in his brain? How much worse can it get? Part of me wants him to plateau but most of me is just asking the Lord for mercy. As awful as it is for me and the rest of our family, I can only imagine how scary it must be for him.
