Q&A: Why would my 85 yr old father exhibit extreme dementia since his broken hip six weeks ago?
Query by Ohshunvu: Why would my 85 yr outdated father exhibit severe dementia because his broken hip six weeks ago?
He see’s snakes coming out of the walls and thinks that he is fighting in WWII again. He does not keep in mind his grandsons and has no clue where he lives. Blood perform was drawn, urine also, and there appears to be no signs of infection. When he fell he hit his head. His speech is slightly slurred as nicely. Even though the rehab center stated that this is what transpires to outdated men and women that have surgical treatment. Does each and every 80 something get dementia since they broke a bone?
Solution by Bree
No, dementia doesn’t come from broken bones, it comes with age. Not absolutely everyone that old gets it. I’m sorry that your grandfather has it.
All you can do is cope and be there for him.
