I'm so sorry you and he are suffering like this. Can you have him evaluated in your home (if he has Alzheimer's, they may be able to send someone out)? Otherwise, maybe a social worker could come to your home. He and you need help. Please reach out to one of the agencies in your area and ask.
Take care of yourself - and him.

I don't think he has Alzheimers's he is very alert, He is forever in his computer and read books a lot, Just his movement is the main problem, Urinating is that much of a problem because he has a tube attached to to his bladder that he can use the bottle, th #2 part is the worst y ,many time he just to it in his pants and I can't get him to use adult diapers he hates it' cleaning part is really hard on me. Very temperamental, he does'nt anybody to touch him but me, another reason why I can't even suggest to get help. He is diabetic too he falls a lot n hardly any more muscle in his legs and arms. How can I get somebody here to see him and evaluate his condition? I don't want him to know that it ismy idea, I'll get yelled at andwill never hear the end of it. Will end for now. Please advise. Thanks, C
