And battles for the remote control? My 2 year old beautiful house is no longer clean and beautiful. My sweet husband has moderate dementia and wants to stay independent. But he spills EVERYTHING. And he breaks EVERYTHING. And now the house has that nursing home smell that I am fighting to eliminate. He bathes 3 times a day so he remains personally clean. Any ideas from others?
Also, a presenter at a conference who has Alzheimers recommended that we not change the channel on the TV from the program that the patient is watching. My husband watches the same few programs over and over and over again. Is this healthy for him? I hate to go into another room to watch a little TV and not be with him. But I hate to see him lose interest and start fidgeting when he can't follow my program.
How do others cope? And thank you all so much for your gracious advice.
