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 mums limbs twitch and jump when she is dosing during the day.

He has accused me of taking his money ( he keeps losing his money clip and we find it everywhere). He thinks everyone is out to get him. no matter what we do or where we go his fear is we'll leave him. I'm at my witts end right now as there is no… read more
Researching I saw this medicine was used for Epileptic seizures & bipolar but not Alzheimer’s. The week of Thanksgiving my mom went into Hospice for comatose like agitation. She’s on 25mg in AM & Afternoon & 200mg at night of Serequel. She has times where she’s agitated & doesn’t sleep, so they gave me Lorazepam 1mg if she has anxiety & insomnia and Haloperidol 5mg as needed. She has been agitated & delusional for 34 hours now and full of meds that could calm a raging gorilla and yet talking and… read more
