Getting him a place in a Care Home doesn't happen overnight, yet his hospital ward is a depressing place and those around him are similarly beset by dementia to one degree or another, although neither fellow patients in his 'room' even talk! He wants us just to take him home, which, obviously, we can't. It's all very sad.
Although I promise him I'll find somewhere for him to go soon, he's convinced that they'll carry him out of there in a box.
As I said, visits are depressing just now.
