Just wondering if anyone has been down this path with their caree? My mum, 89, recent very rapid cognitive decline, has been worsening. Today she has spent from 9 am this morning until now (still going strong!) repeating the same few statements, over and over again and at times getting very agitated and very upset. I haven't been able to distract her with anything. Needless to say, my head is fit to burst. I've had a visit from a CPN today who suggested an extra 0.5mg Lorazepam which so far seems to have had no effect whatsoever. She's still going strong. I had to call them again and they have suggested that if I'm happy to, then I can give her another 0.5.mg. Am trying to hang on a bit as I usually give her this at night and it helps her sleep a bit at least. One of the psychiatrists is due to come out to see her tomorrow and they may put her with the team who do daily visits so that they can monitor her behaviour more closely. A possible admission to the local psychiatric hospital was mentioned - in order to get her medications right. Has anyone had experience of their very confused caree going into such a hospital? Would it be a good move, or should I try to hang on and get the meds right at home with their home visits? Any views would be gratefully received. Thanks. I'm starting to feel a bit desperate now as next step after carer at home was going to be day care, but in her current state, I don't think anyone would take her - or would they?
