Ok, so this is an impossible question to answer! But maybe someone who's been through this can offer some experience? Mum has just gone into a home (2 weeks now) and she's convinced we've shoved her there to get rid of her. She keeps saying she wants to go home and for the first time she's getting quite angry and (in her way) aggressive. (We daren't let her go home because she's already wandered off without knowing where she's gone, etc, etc and this time of year we're seriously worried because she can't dress herself for the weather.) We're prob going to add some calming meds (Lorezapam) and she's just started on Donepezil as well. Million dollar question now: how long before she settles down without the aggression? Could be weeks, could be months I guess. But what have other people experienced here? Just listening out for some similar experiences I guess!
