So T is finally home from a 6 week hospital-to-nursing home (mis) adventure!
After a few days of slightly looking disoriented and confused he seems finally happy and settling down. However, I’m finding it harder and harder to entertain him or get him interested in something so he doesn’t bolt out of his chair and walk about and fall along the way, whilst I’m prepping food etc.
The usual TV programs he used to love, games, iPad, iPhone etc does not interest him (at all) anymore.
What he finds interesting and to get him occupied recently is the buttons (poppers) in his feeding bib, which he happily pops in and out repeatedly which is great for awhile until he gets bored with it.
Anyone experience something similar with their wards? If so, any ideas/recommendations for other toys or gadgets (adult or otherwise) that may keep him occupied?
Also he’s been waking me up in the wee hours in the morning groping for my hand and squeezing it (painfully) hard and giving me a blank stare. He would stop if I tell him he’s hurting me BUT then resume again. I’ve bought a squeeze ball and I’ll see if I can give him that as a substitute to my hand tonight.
Again anyone experience any of these (PSP?) symptoms?
