This has only come in in the last few months. Before that, he would scream at me and tell me that I needed to take him home. He requires 24/7 and he fell (several times) and ended up in hospital, then rehab 3 times. I told him that he and I were not doing well on our own and that he and I both needed a safe place. Its been a process, but now when I talk to him on the phone, or see him in person, I cant hardly hear him. Its not just to me that he is whispering. His aides and nurse and doctor cant hear him either. He's had oxygen counts, they are fine. He's compliant, just really depressed. Is on antidepressants.
