My mum is in late stage of dementia (diagnosed 2005).I moved in to care of her 2 years ago. For the last 2 weeks mum just has not slept, waking every hour during the night, she is tired during the day but does not catch up on sleep (consequently nor do I). I have tried giving her a relaxing bath before bed, warm drink, talking to her about going to sleep, making sure she goes to the toilet before bed, nothing is working. Her G.P didn't think any medication would help. I am worried how long she can cope without sleep and what going to happen next. Has anyone got any tips or know off any medication etc that can help.
