Probably the saddest was a resident I had a Long time ago. This gentleman was a ww 2 vet with alzhiemers and dementia, probably once or twice a month he would relive some battle he was in. He would litterally RUN up the hallway and grab you and yell at you to get down behind the sandbags. He would then tell you take take his thomson because it was too heavy for him he would just use his pistol. Then he would get up and run back down the hallway… This guy was OLD and seeing him run fullsprint like that up and down the hallway during one of his episodes was surreal.
I cant imagine having to constantly relive the worst moments of your life where you witnessed and survived the unspeakable horrors of war….
