I had gotten a weighted blanket for my dad. He didn't particularly care for it. Got it wet with urine and washing instructions are a pain.

Bob used to be difficult when it came time to shower and shave. Now I spread the tasks out instead of trying to get it all done. It also has helped to ask Alexa to play music by the Eagles. He loves all kinds of music, but Eagles has become the Showering music. He becomes a lot happier and cooperative.

My father is always complaining of the cold in the morning, I thought it was because he came to Michigan to live with us from Puerto Rico but I have to get the bathroom nice and warm and run the water before I can get him to take a shower.
Then for the most part he sleeps or watches TV. If he doesn't sleep and is awake for hours, he will start sundowning in the evening and then he's in an episode for a day or so.

89 yo husband w/some kind of dementia gets cold if ceiling fan is on with ac at 80. Wears underwear and socks under long pjs, winter quilt on, winter robe on. Likes to sit in one place hours unless I tell him to do a task. Puts heavy throw over his lap if I don’t hide it. Poor circulation plus ? ?, must be a brain thing. It’s not just old age.

My husband is always cold also. He's always preferred being warm, but it's really getting extreme.
