My husband doesn't even know who he is and is eating and drinking less. I try not to force food, water. I do not want to put him in a "rest home"....I have never seen one that I would put a relative. I am the caregiver 24/7 with help from hospice. Their nurses, aides, volunteers and social workers are so much help and they are offering me respite for 5 days. I really need it. He is no company as he doesn't know the decade he is in and he is always talking and planning trips. He also "sees dead people". But it seems to me that he is quite strong. I don't wish him gone, I just would like to see him have peace. He doesn't seem to know he has a left side that is paralyzed and insists for as long as 10 to 12 hours at a time that he can walk and I am keeping him from getting out of bed. Then he becomes mean. I am perplexed. Anyone else have a problem like this?
