As I've mentioned before, my Grandma has been declining for probably about five years now, but rapidly in the last year. She is confused, paranoid and wanders. For about the last six months, my parents have had to deal with incidents about once a week - she tries to 'go home', or calls in floods of tears telling them her delusions. About three or four weeks ago she collapsed in the street, and when she went to hospital it was found that this was due to extremely low blood pressure caused by the fact that she was taking far too much medication for her high blood pressure. I assume her general health was checked, and her GP went through her existing medication with my Grandad, and told him exactly what she should be taking and when. Since then she has not had a single episode (or at least not one bad enough for my Granddad to get my parents involved). She has been a lot happier (which is lovely to hear and makes me realise how sad she must have been before), and although confused still, it is manageable and a lot less so. In the first week we thought this must just be a coincidence but after so long, I am beginning to wonder! Has anyone else noticed anything like this? If this is a common situation then I would just like to make people more aware!
