I’m just thinking ahead before discharge. Hospitalized for a stroke two weeks ago. In diapers, bed to wheelchair with 2 person pivot cause nurses are careful but could walk with PT by sides and/or walker for 100 meters. Catheter in, maybe indefinitely due to chronic urinary retention. Feed tube but can now swallow liquids but refused. No paralysis just weak from bed bound. However developed behaviour problems from stroke or early dementia? Started on antipsychotic and antidepressant.
What would be the challenge of bringing home? I would think the acting out behaviour for us. Don’t know if behaviours due to post stroke or dementia starting and progressing because brain damage from stroke. Hopefully the antipsychotic drug would stop the challenging behaviours. Any advice?
