@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?

@hopeful33250 …Thank you for your kind words. Did try speech therapy when in early stage, but to no avail. He tried so hard but the therapist thought it was too stressful for him. And he is worse as I have said. Also has what doc called essential tremor which has also gotten worse and his balance is off. Needs assistance but hates to be followed he can still walk after getting help up from chair.
