Dad is 85, diagnosed with mild dementia. He is in adult daycare 5 days a week and with my siblings and I on weekends. He lives with my mother. My mother is 85 and unable to cope with my dad’s memory impairment. He has very little short term memory. She is angry, unhappy and difficult to deal with. It is an unhealthy environment yet my dad wants only to be with her. Recently my dad had an episode where he thought he was working and needed to call the company to advise of his retirement. My mother called this a “psychotic break” and reported to the adult daycare who prescribed Seraquel (light dosage). I googled Seraquel and saw that it is not for the elderly.
I strongly believe that my dad would benefit with a mild anti anxiety medication as all he does is worry about my mother. She has opted not to pursue on his behalf however. She has medical POA for my dad.
Does anyone have experience with Seraquel and their elderly parents? I do not know what the dosage is only that he takes a half of a pill.
