I just needed to let someone know that I recently had to put my 47 year old husband in a nrsing home with locked ccdi unit- they say he has lewy body dementia.....The guilt I am feeling for this is unbearable-eventhough everyone including docs say that this is the best place for him. i work 2 jobs and he needs 24 -7 care at this point. I just cant stand to see him in a place like this -he needs help eating, dressing and all daily activities, i tried keeping home for awhile-with help from relatives, but it got to be too much for them also.
is it true that people with dementia do better in home with like individuals where thier routine is the same every day?
