My father has alzheimers and has trouble sleeping. It started when he went into respite for 2 weeks about about a month ago. His gp prescribed tamazepam but it had little or no effect. My mother, who is his main carer cannot cope and is wanting him to go into care because she is exhausted. She feels she could cope if he slept. She is very independent and accepts limited help from us - I have 2 brothers and a sister We are all willing to do whatever it takes to keep him at home to support Mom. Dad is 82 and has had alzheimers for 6 years and is now stage 3. Mom is 78.
