@hopeful33250 Doing better. I feel bad for my husband. He is frustrated when trying to talk. Says bits and pieces but I don't understand him very well. Now at meals he eats with hand while holding fork in one hand. Doesn't want help either. Not only does that stress me but this fingernails are filthy. I try to cut them. He doesn't like it. I'm washing his hands and also using a cuticle stick to clean nails. Nursing home doesn't bother. Frustrating.

@dianajane I appreciate the update. I certainly admire all that you are doing to help your husband. I understand your frustration over the nursing home not being attentive to the details of hygiene including caring for nails, etc.

I'm sorry to hear that he is continually frustrated with speech problems. Not being able to communicate is a tremendous loss. You take it for granted until you can no longer use this skill. I don't suppose any speech therapy is available for him now?
