Me again, sorry. Since my recent post about my brother sleeping anywhere in his home, his symptoms have worsened to the extent that he only really gets about an hours sleep at any one time and in between, seems to be pacing around his home. Last week I bought him a comfortable chair for his kitchen diner, which he where he seems to be sleeping rather than in bed. He loves this chair apparently and says it's so comfortable. Prior to this he was falling asleep at the kitchen table on a dining chair. I'm wondering if buying this chair hasn't helped. His appetite is going too. Just a few weeks back he was enjoying the food his daily carer prepares for him but now he only takes a few mouthfuls. He used to eat the whole meal and a desert after with yoghurt too. I don't know how he manages to find the energy to keep pacing between the short sleeps. Since Sunday, in total he's only slept about 7 hours and the carer is reporting that he's falling asleep whilst eating his lunch. I ring him every day (I live three hours away and he hasn't got any other family) and these last few days it takes me two or three calls to get him to pick up. He is not struggling to recognise things such as the phone, the fridge etc I've spoken to the doctor about his sleep patterns. The doctor is reluctant to give him any sleep medication in case he falls over if he wakes up during the night. He lives alone by the way and is in the later stages of FTD.
