Hi - sorry you've been having such a bad week. It's always alarming when things take a sudden turn for the worse. It might be worth re-testing to ensure the urine infection has definitely gone via the GP as sometimes they take a little while to clear and can cause havoc for a dementia sufferer and unusual behaviours. Chase also your local alzheimers branch and stress it's urgent you speak to someone soon, we had a very good alzheimers support worker who gave us some excellent advice during many a hard time. I've not experienced the head nodding personally but perhaps others have. Wishing you well.
