My husband and I have battles and I know one of us could get hurt, and I would be to blame because he has Alzheimer's. Lately he refuses to let me do anything: bathe him, change adult incontinence pads, etc, and giving him his sedative is difficult and it doesn't seem to calm him anymore; I have tried everything I know to let him have some quality to his life but he fights every step. He cannot talk, and I don't think he can understand what I'm trying to tell him, so he just yells, tries to hit, push, etc. I will push him onto a bed or chair just to protect myself. No outside care has worked as he does this to others too; at a recent week of respite he gave everyone a hard time and they told me they didn't know how I coped with him day after day. I think he may have bed sores now, from laying long hours in wet clothes, but he won't let me check it out, clean or do anything. I don't think he has less than 6 months to live, but I do wonder if he is in the last stages of AD and should I call Hospice. I am losing my ability to love him and feel burned out.
