This is my 1st post
My Dad is 79 was in hospital for 5 month now they have put him in a nursing home.
They say he's not long left and each time we visit he's deteriorated and more confused. He stares a lot and points and plays with his fingers.
He said the other day he's tired because he went fishing walked there and back (he is bed ridden).
He has lost half is body weight, no appetite. He will maybe eat a couple of mouthfuls in a day, some days nothing at all. He drinks very little.
He now has a pad on because he kept wetting the bed.
Can anyone advise me on maybe how long he has to suffer like this?
I know it's difficult to say but has anyone had the same with their loved ones? ?He really has no idea what day it is and 6 months ago he was the carer for my Mum who sadly passed away in July.
