Although technically I am no longer a caregiver because my husband is in a nursing home I would like to ask a question. When I visit my husband he is almost always asleep either in his chair or in his bed. Yesterday I was asked why he was always sleeping. Having had older pets who basically slept their life away I had not thought about the amount that he was sleeping. Am I wrong? He has some type of dementia and has already lost the use of his arms and legs.
