My mum wanders around the care home all day long consequently gets tired and is far more prone to falls.
She has started to lean markedly over to one side - this makes her far more unsteady. The last time this happened she was at her own home and I stopped the anti-psychotic amusulpride (gradually) and her posture straightened up and she stopped falling.
The home have stopped giving her the amusulpride - and the leaning over to one side has recently started again. She has been prescribed Lorazepam prn.
The home asked me if I have any ideas; She has also in the last few days got quite moody even to the point of lashing out at staff - which she previously had NEVER done.
They are going to try to get a Urine sample (v.difficult) and give her some laxatives as her belly is v.swollen (last day or so) and these are making her feel unwell hence the moody behaviour.
Worried as home doesn't have an EMI unit and I would hate to have to take mum out as its such a good home.
