Hi, hubby 65, stage 5/6 vascular dementia. Mostly incontinent though can sometimes make it to the loo for a poo, needs feeding/washing/dressing. Sleeps 16/18 hours a day. Does not talk much or follow conversations if more than 1 person is speaking. Hates noise of any kind. Mobility very poor due to osteoarthritis of knees, severely sight impaired, has spatial neglect that all the professionals we have encountered do not understand; if there is no-one on his left side he just walks straight into things- doors/walls/people. I take him out in the car most days for 2/3 hours but he just sits in the passenger seat, head on chest and not looking around or showing interest in anything. At the moment he is not drinking enough so went Doctors who referred us to the mental health team. They have come up with day care. I am not sure it will help with the drinking problem. their theory is that seeing other people drink will make him drink. We have been to several family do's/wakes etc etc and he still does not drink. Does anyone here think that the day care will help him?
