My 65 year old sister lives in a nursing home near me. I moved her l here last year She had been in a PCH that did not work out. She has done pretty good until this past month. She stays awake for hours and goes through the home causing the disruption of the other patients by going into their rooms, getting in their beds, pulling and grabbing at the caregivers and recently started taking her clothes off. She makes noises that sound like she is saying, ready to go. That is my interpretation. She started eating with her hands, she is walking with short steps and she falls occasionally but usually she just flops down wherever she is. and just sits. When she first went in to the nursing home, she would stand and fall so they put her in a soft restraint. They still walked her every day and she seemed to get better but then her behavior got much worse and her sleeping habits were down the tubes, so to speak. The history of her downfall started in 2007 when she began to get reprimands at work until she was fired, the day before her 61rst birthday after 43 years, She lost her health, dental and life insurance. I did not know this until the day she was fired.Her husband at that time, talked her into cashing out all her funds, so she had nothing. She cashed that in 2005, I think. After her husband died, she really started losing it. (This was her second husband that helped her spend her retirement ahead of time). Her house was in foreclosure and they had declared bankruptcy 2 times in 11 years of marriage.She was in a major crisis. She still had another year before she could get her social security. One of her nurses said she might have had a nervous breakdown but anyway, I am wound up trying to figure out what she has. She spent almost a month, last summer, in a neuro psych ward but they said she had a UTI..The NH she is in has been great. They did move her today to a facility that checks their meds, to see if that is the cause, but someone in the medical field mentioned Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus so I looked it up and it sounds like it could be that. I don't know. I am grasping at everything to find out something. I am sorry this is so long.
