He's had problems sleeping for a lot of years in the past.
He's on pain medications due to the many falls he's had prior to the PD Diagnosis, but that doesn't seem to help him sleep.
He's constantly calling mom to help him get comfortable in bed, or go to the bathroom to urinate, as he just can't urinate in the urinal. Mom is getting resentful, as she's getting called to help in every 1/2 hour, and needless to say, she's not getting any sleep.
I've offered to come help on Friday evenings, as it's not possible to help during the week, as I won't be able to concentrate at work. But Dad is very concious of me helping him to the bathroom. so my offer was turned down.
My folks, nor I, have the finances to hire someone to help at night, and I'm not sure if mom would feel comfortable with a stranger in their home, and I know she still wouldn't sleep. Mom promised dad she would never place him in a home, so they're caught between a rock and a hard place, so to speak.
The problem becomes, how I constantly have to hear how she doesn't know how much longer she can deal with this, and how she didn't sleep, and how many times he woke her up, etc, etc.
I don't know what to say to her any more, and I'm at witt's end! I need some suggestions, and / or support. Help!
