I am new here I found this place on accident. I am taking care of my father he fell over a year ago and broke his hip the doctor did a bad job on surgery and he has never walked after that. My husband and I I take care of him mostly me my husband works 3am until sometimes 5pm. It is to a point now where my Dad fights with me about taking his meds and he wants up and down from bed about 20+ times a day. I have MS so it takes a toll on me changing him and getting him into the wheelchair which takes about 20 mins on a good day getting him to the kitchen and BOOM he yells TAKE ME BACK THERE after 10 mins. I have to roll him back to his room (first I have to strip his bed and but new linens and blankets down) and get his lift all set up get him in bed and that is my day besides washing blankets and sheets all flipping day.
AND all night I mean all night he calls my name I don't think he sleeps.
What do you do about the up and down game? and the fighting about taking his meds?
