My husband also has vascular dementia. I haven't been able to get him to see a doctor in almost a year.
He has no energy to do anything. Not shower or change his clothes. He becomes very combative when I have to insist on changing his underwear and sponging him down. He watches tv and sleeps. His appetite has decreased the past six months. All he wants is chocolate milk and jello. I have made numerous appts the past 8 months but had to cancel because of his reisistance. Want to start home health, but no one will approve unless he is evaluated by a doctor. I am going round and round. I keep him hydrated and comfortable and making sure he takes his meds. I just don't know what else to do. Anyone have any experience with CHF. Thank you
