My husband with AD has declined at an alarming rate in the last three months. I have a live-in caregiver, but he's becoming too much for the two of us. My husband can only take meds crushed in applesauce now, he is very unsteady on his feet and has taken several falls and has ripped the buttons off of every shirt we put on him. He has become combative towards both of us. The facilitator of the in-person support group I attend suggested calling in Hospice. How do you know when it's an appropriate time for that? Bless all the Caregivers during this holiday season and all year long.
