Going through it again.

There are precautions I can take, like putting clothes in sealed bags....

General Discussion / brother with dementia/alzheimers....
« Last post by Pleeb on September 07, 2019, 08:20:48 PM »
I never know the difference between dementia/alzheimers.

Anyway, my older brother was at the front of the line to get into a nursing home because he was delirious and such.

Last week or so, he got into a really nice two story place in Ajax, Ontario.  It's pretty new too.  Really nice place!


The first couple of days:  "get me out of here....is this a looney bin?"  "Looney bin" because of other residents' behaviour?

A week later he settled in....maybe partly because one of his sons and family visited every day.

They got him a single room ($!) because of his social phobia....he may feel uncomfortable with another person around?
This may not be an issue anymore, as he's so "out of it" he doesn't remember he has social phobia?  If that makes sense.


When I saw him he was cheerful...maybe wasn't sure who some of us (relatives) were.  He never did this before -he throws in some German when he talks....but usually just exclamations like the German version of "my oh my!" or similar.


Peter

Re being delirious, when he was at home he thought he had two cats instead of one, and another guy living in his house.

AND.....he thought there was a stage with live musicians in his house.  And the neighbours thought the music was too loud.

  Hi Peter
   Sorry you are going through this again. From what I know of the little bugs you are have a re-infestation most likely that they didn't do one apt or someone in the building has someone who is visiting bringing them in or it could be as simple as someone buying an item from someone who had them in their place. They can go dormant for around 18 months if no "food" is at hand. They travel as well and apt building are like a highway pipes that go through rooms wires etc. They are drawn by the air you exhaile. Hope you can get the mangament to fix it quickly. Good luck

Off topic - a good thing about online forums is that I can go back in the past to see how I felt, when things happened.....like a certain kind of bugs. >:( 
Didn't think I saw them more than a month ago, June 24.

I've seen guys in handcuffs more than 5 times......but not lately, except for the other day.

Haven't hardly been to Emergency in ages, but when my parents were around......went a fair number of times.


Peter


Which reminds me - I live in a senior's (sp.) building, but haven't seen ambulances taking people so often.....seldom, which is nice.

Also, unlike other high rises, no false fire alarms with fire trucks showing up for nothing....  That's semi common in other buildings.

Hi, guys.....Maybe a person could ease into it?

Chair yoga first?

Don't know much about chair yoga, though.

Hello Peter. As long as it's not you in handcuffs LOL. I've never seen anyone in handcuffs any where. I guess I've lived a sheltered life LOL. Take Care. paul m
