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.
Is it part of Alzeihmers and can anything be done about it.
Help me please! I must get an answer to how to get him to sleep and which medication is best.

My father is becoming more aggressive and rude and mean. Starting to say hurtful things. Any suggestions on how to ease him?
My sister is back in a horrible sleep pattern. She wants to be in bed all day and she gets up a dozen or more times a night and gets dressed to start her day. Last night I got so frustrated I took every stitch of her clothing g away from her except her pj drawer. I locked it in the spare bedroom without her seeing where I put it. I know it caused her stress but it kept her in bed when she couldn't find anything to change into
Today I put everything back in her room but I put a shelving… read more
The nursing home called me and I was available to come to nursing home and they said he was combative. I got there and he was fine and they took him to get a shower. He told me that they “rule” Is there another option that they can do? Spongebath etc?
