Hubby has been deteriorating for a number of weeks - physically and also dementia-wise. He is in frail physical health, needs help with most things but this past week much worse. On Friday he couldn't stand even when supported by care worker and me, one on either side. Even sitting he kept veering to the side, seemed too weak to hold himself up even sitting. So I sent for GP to call. We don't actually get GP doing housecalls here. Paramedic comes and "assesses", reports back to GP and they decided OH needed to be in hospital. OH has UTI but not sure what else is involved. He started antibiotics yesterday and will have other checks after weekend. He has had UTI before so I am aware of the havoc caused by that but his all-round deterioration is very evident so I don't know what to expect this time.
