Sudden decline in dementia and wandering off
After being very sick for three weeks with chills, fevers and round the clock hiccups my husband’s dementia has increased drastically. Has anyone else observed something similar? Is this our new normal or is there any hope that he may get back to the milder symptoms? Also, he has started to wander. One day, I found him in the woods next to our house in his socks. He said, “I think I lost my shoes.” Has anyone used a tracking device that you are really pleased with? He is an engineer, actually a rocket scientist, and not easily fooled. I need something that is not obtrusive, not easily removed and doesn’t have to be recharged every day or batteries constantly replaced. If it bothers him, he will not wear it. Is there such a thing?
