Hi everyone Last week we had mam having an agressive week shouting at us etc They tried her on some anti depressents to try and make her get some proper rest (she has night reversal and hasn't slept in her bed since going into the care home 3 and a half weeks ago) and to try to calm her down. She had a terrible reaction to these which made her worse so the doctor has stopped the medication. This week she has had a further deteriation she has withdrawn into herself and just sits with her head down and we can hardly make out what she says - not that it makes much sense anyway. The doctor came out on Wednesday and she agreed with the care home that she is having multiple mini strokes. She has had a fall today and bruised the side of head. With vascular dementia you usually experience periods of stability but with mam it just seems a very quick decline.
