My 81yr old mother has been assessed & recently had an MRI scan, we awaiting the results. Mum becomes angry & aggressive most evenings with total confusion come bedtime. She doesn’t recognise her surroundings & gets aggressive when trying to reassure her. My father (80) looks after her everyday, with other family members who attend to her needs from tea time to bedtime; then dad looks after her through the night. It’s a this time that mum is at her worse, often confusing dad for past family members. She’s becomes quite aggressive during this period. We had mum over at ours recently where she let herself out of our house during the night, the police brought her back next morning. The GP has prescribed mum sleeping tablets to assist at night, but that seems to be hit & miss. My story is probably one of thousands but until it happens within your family, I don’t think others fully understand how much pressure it puts on us, who try to help when we can. I know it’s a progressive disease & we can see her decline week by week. Wondering what kind of care help (overnight) is available within our local community?
