My mother-in-law (diagnosed with ALZ in 2012) is now incontinent and my father-in-law is at the point he cannot adequately care for her at home. we just found out she is in the hospital, because the home health care nurse and the aide could barely get her bathed and back in bed today. My father-in-law's ultimate plan is that she go into skilled nursing to see if her strength can be built back up so she can come home. If not, he is prepared for her to be a resident at a nursing home in their town. My father-in-law said their local hospital is full, so she was admitted to the psychiatric ward! All the general restrictions of a psych ward must be followed, including visiting only between 4:30 pm and 6 pm. She is not at all agitated! She is very pleasant and does not argue with anyone! No one is there to be with her, especially her own husband! When he is not with her, she begins to ask where he is - pleasantly, but I can tell that him being away from her for a long time might actually cause her distress! In the past few weeks, my husband and his brothers have been questioning their dad's soundness of mind due to various decisions. What in the world can we do???????
