Hello all, me again. My 73 year old brother with FTD who lives alone and is in the late stages of this awful condition, is sleeping more and more. He has twice daily home care visits and in between those he falls asleep in the chair and often drops off whilst he’s eating his meals. I ring him daily but this last couple of weeks it’s taken me 3 sometimes 4 attempts to get him to answer his landline. Our conversations are getting shorter and he tells me he is sleeping a lot but finds it hard to wake up. Because his speech is failing him, I’m not sure what he means. When I ask him what he means, he just changes the subject to the weather. In fact the weather, the time of day, and how he keeps sleeping so much is all he seems able to talk about and he gets his words muddled and leaves out verbs. He is no longer aware of what day it is or whether it’s day or night unless he looks at his dementia clock. Anyone else heard of any dementia sufferer saying it’s hard to wake up?
