My grandpa sits up all day and especially night off the side of the bed with his arms propped up off his walker. He's exhausted and falls asleep in that position. If I manage to convince him to lay down, I pick his legs up and swing him around to lay down, tuck him in and position the bed to where he's almost sitting, it only takes about 5 minutes for him to swing the covers off and sit at the edge again. He gets up every so often to pace the room (to help him rid of gas, but we fixed his gas problem now so idk if he is just confused and mentally thinks he needs to be sitting and walking all the time). When I tell him he needs to get in bed and sleep he has coined the phrase "one more minute". But he's so stubborn that this one minute becomes 30 mins to even hours. Obviously I get frustrated because I can't leave him in that position all night where if he loses control he could fall, and I would not be able to pick him up, and I can't leave him to go back to sleep on his own as he needs assistance lifting his legs into bed. We told the doctor this but he didn't think much of it and said maybe it was time we put him in a nursing home, which is something my family will never consider doing, culturally. The doctor didn't prescribe anything. We tried melatonin with minimum to no effect. The max length we've been able to get him to sleep is about 2 hours at a time, usually during the day though. I'm assuming it's dementia, but could there be any other reason he just can't stay in bed?
