This site has been very helpful to me so far. I posted last week about guardianship and such and got some very helpful answers about elder care lawyers and what I need to do and I actually have already taken some advice and had my 2nd meeting with lawyers already. Thanks so much! Now my new situation is hubby has been "almost" himself in the last 4 days. Not only with me but his family and even been socializing with others at nursing home. He is there for rehab and his medicare expires July 5th, thus the rush to get him Medicaid and placed. He even remembers his release date, counts the days till home (I feel so guilty) and I am confused now totally. We also have a possible hospice placement involved but now I feel maybe he should just come home. He has even taken a few steps, with assistance and walker, in rehab. Of course, I am thinking my way into a huge let down. I feel now, maybe he does not have Lewy body and vascular dementia, maybe Dr made a mistake, he will be home and normal again and my heart knows this will change but my mind is determined to bring him home on July 5th for a "trial" The only different thing in his treatment lately is that he was put on Aricept. I know it is up to me to make this decision but has anyone here had this happen? Is this almost being back to himself behavior common? very confused right now.
