So as I posted before, my OH went into respite care 2 weeks ago, and I pick him up on Saturday. The home called tonight, and one of the senior nurses wanted me to know that he has formed an “attachment” to one of the other residents, an 80yr old woman. (He is 81) she said that they follow each other around, and sometimes hold hands. She thinks he is her husband and he calls her his friend. I actually laughed at first, and I do know that this sort of thing can happen in homes, and they don’t appear to worried about it, especially as he has been asking for me. Does anyone have experience of this? And will it take long for him to settle back in at home?
