Sorry if this is a silly question but I'm still finding my way with Dad's Alzheimer's. to cut a long story short, a few weeks ago Dad had a very bad fall down the stairs and broke his neck. He is still in a specialist trauma unit and we are awaiting transfer back to his local hospital. He had surgery a week after his fall, it took this long because some of the Dr's did not want him to have the surgery due his his numerous health issues. Anyway, eventually it went ahead. Initially he was doing well, 5 days after surgery he had physio and even managed to stand. Since then however, he has been barely awake and when he is he is incoherent. He didn't have his meds for a week but he is having them now. We were told his Alzheimer's wold be the same as before the fall, but we are not experiencing this. He is extremely confused, is having a lot of visual distortion and is shouting out and having conversations with people who are not there. The Dr's are telling us that we should think about nursing homes as he will need a lot more care that we will not be able to manage at home. It's been very difficult to deal with, I don't feel ready to think of nursing homes but I also need to be realistic. Anyone else had experience of a loved one falling and then the Alzheimer's rapidly changing? Any advice about nursing homes? Would we need to sell his house to fund this? Difficult as my sisters still live there and that would make them homeless. Thanks for reading if you got this far.
