My husband has been in a care home for 8 months and I visit most days. He has had a few knock backs resulting in hospital admissions but is now settled. He is mostly bed bound and looks very comfortable, although I do worry about him laying with the tv on most of the day. I asked him if he was happy last week to which he replied 'yes I think so'. Some days they use the hoist and he goes to the day room, but he does not like hoisting. He has been saying all weird and wonderful things when I go, and I have found the best way is to go into his world with him. This seems to work. However recently I have had days when he has not done that as much and has been commenting on what is on TV. He even asks me yesterday how old I am. He also never forgets my name, am I deluded thinking this is a sign of him improving. He did have an official diagnosis over two years ago following scans. I then start feeling perhaps I should bring him home although he is doubly incontinent, cannot feed himself, or even walk. Has anyone else experienced this improvement. It is not as if he recognises people on TV, he sometimes does not say the weird things lately, for example of weird - this place is so big, it is full of tunnels and there are drops of about a hundred feet in places! His memory though is quite bad. He cannot remember at teatime if he had lunch of if anyone was there two hours earlier.
