It also hurts me when I visit him, and I have to lie, and keep looking for excuses to make him understand that he is not coming home. He cries every time I visit, which hurts me, and I also end up crying when I get in the car. The nurses tell me he gets very angry at them if they don't call me. Is this normal behavior for dementia? During the first weeks at the nursing home, he used to tell me he liked the place, the food, the people; maybe he thought it was temporary. Why the change now after almost 4 months?
