Why does Nursing Home change Medication? Every time Mom's just right, they change it and she's not right.. My Mom has dementia and in NH, physically at this point she's OK. Mom's condition is able to be stabalized with medication. The right combo has been a blessing. As soon as she gets to a point where she's stable and looking well and functioning well as can be....they change her dose. They have done this serveral times and every time they find out the same results, she's unstable. They tell me they have to do this. I don't get it??? Can anyone explain?
