Hello. This is my first post so I'm sorry if these questions have been asked before. My mum has Alzheimer's and is now in bed and refusing to eat or drink very much. She now has a live in carer who is lovely and caring for her very well. However mum has started to shout out very loudly, both during the day and at night. The shouting has now become so loud that the neighbours are concerned that mum is OK. However we have established that she isn't in pain in any way but just seems to be shouting because she can. Are there any strategies for dealing with this sort of behaviour - we have been suggested milky drinks at night, leaving the light on, keeping her more active during the day so that she sleeps more soundly at night etc. but with little effect. I am worried that if the shouting becomes a real problem for the neighbours mum will have to go into a specialist dementia unit. Going into a home is against her wishes and I am resisting this if at all possible. Someone suggested sedation, but mum is now refusing to take any medication so it's difficult to know how we would administer this is prescribed. Any ideas or thoughts anyone can suggest would be gratefully received. Thank you!
