The need has come for overnight care for Louie. He fell five times in four days last week when he tried getting up on his own. We have extra services for morning and evening dressing and help to the bathroom. Also he now has escorts taking him to dinner in a wheelchair. We are interviewing someone tomorrow for help with overnight care.
For now my brother and I are taking turns spending the night. So far tonight he has tried getting up five times because he’s “been in bed too long.” It’s 1:25 am and he was put in bed about 10:30. It’s sort of like guard duty for my dad. His time is very near, and Radar knows it as well. He doesn’t want to leave his side.
