Hi all, I am new to the forum. My dear mum, 72, has now moved in to a nursing home following a huge deterioration of her dementia in the summer which culminated in a section. After five months in hospital, she moved into the home in December. My dad just couldn't cope any longer. Initially she settled in well, but after 8 weeks there has been a significant deterioration. In the mornings she is violent and screams and runs around the corridors in a great deal of distress. This is a daily upheaval. She does settle after a hour or so, but getting her dressed is the trigger for this aggression. There has been a review of her medication and an anti depressant has been introduced, but this has been ineffective. The doctor has today suggested introducing an anti psychotic. I have heard some negative comments about the use of these. Does anyone have any advice please?
