My sister has been the caregiver for her husband who

My sister has been the caregiver for her husband who has advanced Parkinson's and the stress has caused memory and concentration issues. Recently she had a rather serious fall (her first) and was admitted to hospital. MRI and other tests revealed nothing but her confusion comes and goes. She has now been given a diagnosis of dementia. Can such severe stress be a factor? Now that the husband won't be returning home, could this situation reverse itself?

My mother in law was hospitalized last year with pneumonia. Over the years, of her residing in FLA, she had frequent boughts of bronchitis. If this is a viral infection, can my husband pick up the infection while caregiving for her in NYS? If it is a bacterial infection can my husband pick up the infection while caregiving for my mother in law? I am a caregiver for my father who resides next door to me and my mother in law would like to go shopping with him on Saturdays, would this be a bad idea until she is feeling better. As we all do not want to be sick when caregiving for each other.

Hi - I m a hospice nurse in California. We are caring for an elderly woman with CHF and complications from diabetes who is becoming increasingly agitated and combative. She is on Lorazepam 2 mg q4h and Seroquel 100 mg bid (these are increases from a week ago). She was uncontrollably combative but bedridden for the caregiver last night. We have a new order for Haldol 4 mg IM q6h and a nurse has given her one dose today. She is calm at the moment. My question is about whether it is a good idea or even legal for the nurse to teach the caregiver to administer the Haldol IM? I realize the caregiver is responsible for the other meds but something about this makes me uncomfortable. I m looking up regs right now in California but happened upon this website. What do you think? Thank you.
