I care for a lady age 67 she has a learning disability
She was reviewed 6 years ago about having dementia . Which came back saying she didn’t
Things have changed especially at night . Behaviours are really bad screaming cursing banging
She goes to bed happily but awakens in an awful rage
I have cared for this lady for 19 year and yes I am attatched to her as work calls it . I feel there’s more to it and think it may be dementia
Can’t seem to find much information about signs to look out for
Any help much appreciate this had been going on for 4 month
Dr trying to aid sleep but she then can’t function in mornings

Welcome @Weerachelt

I don`t think anyone can make a diagnosis here although areas of concern are usually memory loss, confusion, and behaviours which cause concern.

I can only suggest you seek medical advice about the lady you are caring for as soon as possible.
