I care for my grandma with dementia. She's been high functioning to a point meaning she still uses the bathroom with accidents occasionally, can still feed herself, assists with dressing herself, takes her own pills, etc. Lately she's been calling out into the night, "HELP ME. LORD PLEASE HELP ME." Now before this point it was because she was in pain. This might still be the case as she has a lot of aches and pains. She's on pain shots to alleviate neck pain from a break 3 years ago. She has cortizone shots in various joints to help with that pain. Right now she's trying to have a sore heal up on her bottom but I'm changing her position to help alleviate that and she claims with the positioning changes she isn't feeling it as much.
Is there something dementia related that makes the crying out every hour happen ? I'm hoping there is not but I figure I'd reach out here in case.
