My husband is in memory care, he has LBD. The memory care facility called and said he has deteriorated a lot more in the last ten days, a great deal more confusion, incontinence is worse, COPD is worse. He refuses to eat; at times they can coax him into eating some.......the most he eats is maybe 25% of breakfast, at best. Two weeks ago he could carry on somewhat of a conversation, as long as we went along with his fantasy stories. Now he makes no sense; whatever you ask him, he responds with something totally unrelated which makes no sense what-so-ever. The doctor told me if he goes downhill in the next 6 months like he did in the past six months (that was before the past 10 difficult days), that there won't be much left of him.
He refuses to use his walker or cane and falls frequently. He refuses to get dressed; when the staff tries to help him get dressed, he gets hateful, tells them to get out.
Is this the last stage, or could he go on like this indefinitely? He wants to lay in bed all day; they try to keep him mobile, walk with him when he's willing.
