i work in a long term care unit at a retirement residence. it’s very common for strange things to happen when one of the residents dies. usually, thier call bell will go off all night and others will go off when a patient doesn’t even call for us. the residents get restless and so does the unit mascot cat. the residents start talking to ppl who aren’t there and the t.v.’s will go on and off. and the “visitor at front door” will start to ring. we’ll go and check it out and no one is there.
when i started there almost two years ago, i was a bit freaked out. now it’s so common that i half expect it. there isn’t much i can do about it except to say goodbye to the soul who passed on.
