Having completed two stays in hospital wife came home (the second was unnecessary really), my wife who had Early Onset Dementia was released and came home on the 23rd of Dec, that following week up to the 1st of January I cared for her n fed her n carers popped in 3-4times a day to wash her/change her clothes n to change her incontinence pads. When she was released from hospital she had a cough, which was a croaky one, which one nurse said was probably a dry cough, n she needed to drink more water. All the time of my wife's return home, she still had this cough, my giving her cough medicine gradually eased the coughing for my wife till it was no longer croaky. I noted that during the night of 31 Dec/1Jan that the cough totally disappeared and my wife slept more easily n peacefully. She slept a lot during that day (1Jan) probably because of no coughing anymore n despite my trying to wake her unsuccessfully at times to feed her; later that day after carers had popped in she developed another cough and her breathing sounded bad. Later when the carers popped in again they showed some concern at her breathing, they suggested maybe 1111 should be called but I said that I would do it if i thought it was getting worse. They then left, I became more concerned a short while after they had gone n I phoned her friend in London to listen to her breathing n she said I should call paramedics straight away which I was about do when there was a knock at the door, the carers had returned bringing another carer with them, once inside they revealed they had called paramedics as they were concerned about my wife's breathing. Once paramedics arrived they worked on my wife setting up monitoring equipment n clearing her airways, they came to the conclusion that helping my wife could be better done in hospital, I was at first reluctant to have her go back into hospital having just come out but had to agree to them taking her in if it would help make it easier to get her better. Once there the doctors treated her n gave her antibiotics to help fight the infection. During the night the doctor informed me that the antibiotics weren't working n they were just going to make her comfortable. Sadly that night my wife passed away on 2nd of Jan 2018. Her dementia no longer had a hold on her n she was now at peace.
