I am so sorry, you must be totally exhausted .
perhaps another assessment of needs is required. I found out that night sitters were available for a couple of nights- totally unheard of I thought but apparently not !

Welcome to DTP @Future dreams.
Would the radio drown out some of the talking? Please keep posting as you’ll get lots of support here.

This must be so difficult to live with @Future dreams

I was at the bus stop with a mother and daughter and the mother was continuously talking to herself.

I kept thinking she was talking to me but she wasn`t. I have to admit I was relieved when the bus came.

I'm loathe to suggest it but I wonder if some calming medication might help. I know it`s considered incorrect to medicate to help the carer but if this constant verbalisation is a symptom of anxiety in your husband perhaps his GP could help.
