As I have posted before my darling Husband has had to go into hospital for assessment he was becoming very aggressive in the Nursing home so it was decided that his medication needed sorting out. When I visited on wednesday he was absolutely out of it, he could not stand was incoherant and obviously over medicated I spoke with his consultant and it was agreed that whatever medication they had tried was unsuitable so he would be taken off it immediately and other drugs tried it was also said that he had a vitamin B12 deficiency and would be having an injection to sort this out. Yesterday when I visited I was shocked to see him he was disheveled wearing Braces
something he has never worn and would not wear he would see it as a sign of old age! and he had food stains all down his shirt.
I am afraid I hit the Roof he was awake and quite alert so he knew me I took him to his room to change his clothes one of the staff was saying he had no other trousers I showed her four pairs hung in his locker she could see I was quite distressed and angry, Poor Jim just looked at me. Any how they changed him into some fresh clothes ...no braces and I spent the rest of the visit with him OK. It may seem trivial but just because he has dementia does not mean he should have his dignity taken away.He was always a smart clean man and also quite vain he would be mortified if he realised how bad he looked .
Rant over ..sorry ..
