My husband 86 yrs of age has been in the nursing home for last 10 months, he fractured his hip in May 2021 and after that has been in the N home. Recently it’s been noticed on my face to face visits that his hand and fingers on the outer side were blue and now his right year.
Please can someone tell me what’s happening here and does he need to see the doctor. He has one aspirin a day.
He is in his last stages of Alzeihmers.
Keeping him quite warm may slow process a little but sending hugs as you just be with him as he starts to slip away...talk and sing or play music as the hearing fades last.
Is it part of Alzeihmers and can anything be done about it.
My dad did that all his life and my son also does it without realizing xx
Help me please! I must get an answer to how to get him to sleep and which medication is best.
Thank you Samuel. For now I have him under control with a strict routine. Urbanol for his panic attacks and stilnox mr at bedtime. Works wonders. No stimulation after 8 and off to bed son thereafter.

My husband, who is under hospice, has recently become non stop restless and not able to sleep at all. Just previous to this, he was in a cycle of being up 24 hours and then sleeping 24 hours. But now, he’s not sleeping at all.
That’s good to hear. Now maybe you can get a little rest. The last few weeks before Ernie passed were physically and mentally exhausting. He started refusing food the second day he was in hospice. He… read more
I no everybody/ side effects are different but was curious have any of your love ones take this medicine and have any side effects are have it been effective?.........Just wanted to no any side effects of anybody taking this medicine are what medication have been effective for memory are just daily functions
No my mother in law Peggie was not on that .
The nurses at the hospital said not to use diapers because they hold the heat and moisture next to the skin and you can’t tell if they went to the bathroom with one on.
What do my experienced fellow warriors say? Tonight Ernie took his gown off, pulled the pad out from under himself and used his gown to pee on.
