I'm here again, to pick the brains of those with more experience than me! My ma-in-law's bedroom is the width of the stairs and landing away from mine. When the restlessness and not sleeping started, I got a baby alarm, so I could hear her if she started moving around, etc. Only problem is, sometimes I'd hear noises I couldn't identify, so I'd go into check and she was just doing something harmless, like removing all the pillowcases! But when she saw me, she'd start with "I want to go home", and it'd be ages before I could get her to settle again. I certainly wasn't getting a great deal of sleep. It's now occurred to me that it might be better if I moved in with her. There's enough room for another single bed, with a bit of shifting things round, and I wouldn't be lying there wondering what she was getting up to. Plus, I thought she might settle better if I was somewhere she could see me? We've shared a room when on holiday and, as long I wear one of those eye masks (because she sleeps with the light on) I haven't found it a problem. If anybody has experience of sharing, I'd be very grateful for your views. PS - How very crass of me, of course people with partners with dementia must share bedrooms and beds with them. I can only apologise, sometimes I concentrate so hard on my own particular problems, that I don't give thought to other people. Sorry.
