I’ve posted here before about my Papa. He’s now 91 and still lives alone, which is a battle of will. He is now almost completely blind and very hard of hearing (doesn’t like his expensive hearing aides). He is so extremely bored that he sleeps on and off during the day. Or he will go to bed at 6pm. Sometimes he sleeps through the night. But, other times he’s up at 2am, confused if it’s 2am or 2pm. Same thing with the naps.
Sometimes, he won’t recognize his surroundings when he wakes. Advice says to keep him stimulated during the day so he doesn’t sleep, but how? He’s blind, deaf, and can barely walk. He can’t see the TV and can only listen to it on volume 80. I’m out of ideas, anyone out there have any?
