Hello all, me again. Re my brother of 73 with late stage FTD, lives alone and he's now doing some odd things. The carer arrived Sunday to find the bath full of breakfast cereal... also, the day before that he'd taken all the bedclothes off his bed and rearranged them but put the duvet under the bottom sheet. He is also saying odd things but I think that may be down to his lack of control over his speech now. From being fiercely independent and not wanting company, he now occasionally asks one of the carers to stay a bit longer. We've all noticed how much more frail he's become and a bit wobbly on his feet too. We thought it was just a result of a suspected kidney infection but tests proved negative on that. The doctor thinks he's just 'moved' on to another stage. Along with his sundowning, incredible lack of sleep, he now doesn't recognise everyday household objects in his home such as the fridge, microwave etc. I think it's for him to go into care. He's getting more frequent ailments and is clearly not happy at the way he is. Social Services maintain that he'd be better off at home but I'm not so sure. He's getting twice daily care visits and two outings a week with a carer for a car ride. I don't think more care visits will benefit him. I know I've said this before but selfishly, I feel he'd be much safer in a care home with help and company on hand. Any advice appreciated.
