How to keep a dementia patient in bed during the night?
My mom just got diagnosed with dementia & is all confused with time. She keeps thinking she's either late for something or is in the wrong house. She cannot hold her own weight so she falls. I've taken to sleeping with her cause I can stop her before she has 1 leg out. 5 minutes later it's the same scenario over & over. Sleeping pills just make her groggy. She finally fall into a deep sleep around 5am. Bedrails just make her angry & gives her super powers as shr tries to climb over them. Anyone know a trick?
