Some background: my mom died of COVID in a rehab facility on April 30. My dad declined very suddenly after that. He was hospitalized after a fall and was diagnosed with Parkinson’s and dementia. We did not want to send him to rehab so we brought him home and hired a 24/7 home health aid. My sister also moved in so he has the help he needs. He keeps insisting that he can walk and tries to climb out of his hospital bed. Sometimes he gets very angry and forceful. Should we tell him that he has Parkinson’s? We know he will forget and that we will have to remind him often, but we are wondering if he would be more willing to stay in the hospital bed if he knew.
