Hello to all at talking point. I am a new member and would very much like some advice. My husband was diagnosed Alzheimers mixed vascular dementia in December 2013 during a stay of 3 months in hospital. I fought like a tiger to get him home, which I achieved Feb 2014. We had a good last summer together. His condition deteriorated rapidly and had to go into a care home October 2014. I thought I would lose him at Christmas - he wasn't able to eat or swallow. After I asked the GP to stop all medication, he amazingly perked up and was able to eat (soft diet fed to him and thickened liquids). He is now deteriorating again (it has been incredibly rapid). He is virtually bed bound as there are insufficient staff to give him the one to one care that he needs. I feel he only has a matter of weeks left and my dearest wish would be to have him home again so that I can be with him for his final journey. I know it would not be easy but with some help I know I could do it. What I would like to know is who should I approach about this and what are my chances of success. I would need a special bed (on loan) and help with his personal care at least once a day. Does anyone have a similar experience or could point me in the right direction. I am 58 and reasonably fit, Ben is 69 and barely knows me anymore but responds to my voice and touch.
