Can you use some other form of communication with him other than verbal speech?

Ask the professionals about that.

ie: ask him a question, he answers yes or no by breathing 1 puff for yes, 2 puffs for no; other methods should be available.

He’s not playing possum; he is in the throes of this illness, and helpless to it’s attack on his system…must be very frightened as well by what is happening to him, so needs reassurance, if his hearing is not impaired by it as well; so find out what his faculties are at present, and work with that, striving for more communication, for mutual understanding.
