My dad has dementia, had a stroke 5 years ago is paralyzed on his left side. In the past 2 weeks he's gone even more bonkers... he will poop his pants 4 and 5 times a day. RIGHT after being asked to go sit on the toilet, and he tells me he doesn't need to go. POOP... there it is!
He's doing this weird eye thing... and panting. Not because he's winded just to pant. He will sit in a chair in a room by himself and open and close his eyes repeatedly... his eyes are always looking up when he opens them. This is just in the past couple of weeks.
He can't get off the floor by himself and I've hurt my knee so getting him up by myself is impossible, but he's started holding "meetings" in his room and he will slide out of bed onto the floor and then want to be picked up immediately. he will do this several times a day/night. I have told him time and time again he will be stuck there until I can get help getting him up. (he also poops himself trying to roll around to get to a phone to call people to come help him... cuz ya know I didn't think of that myself) my burn out is burnt out .. I asked my siblings for help a year ago and they refused, saying I manipulated myself into this and I can deal with it... (cuz I'm just sitting here eating bon bons all day and watching soaps while being catered to by all the staff) well its BAD now, and his social worker called them and TOLD them it was BAD, and they come in NOW and are taking over and telling me whats what and how I need to do things.. WTH?? Where were you when it was just starting to slide? How in the HEdouble toothpicks am I the bad guy when you both sat back on your laurels and did NOTHING when I told you it was starting to get bad and now when its finally there you show up and give "advice" on what I should have done... BULL! sorry for that tangent...
about the behavior... what of all that is dementia and what is him being a pain because he can?
