My mother with dementia wants to go to bed right after dinner (5pm). Sometimes she goes to bed before dinner. When she does this she gets up anywhere from 12am to 5am. Since she needs supervision and I'm asleep at those hours I began locking her bedroom door so she can't go to bed until 8pm. She is physically well and can watch tv from her recliner. Now she gets up between 6 and 7 am and I can help her with her morning routine. My husband, who also has dementia but a different kind than Moms, thinks I'm a lousy, mean daughter. I also locked the refrigerator and some cupboards so she can't make a jam and paper towel sandwich. Yes, she used a paper towel as bread and ate some of it before I saw what she was doing. She pulls many things out of the refrigerator and cupboards, opens them and leaves them to spoil. I would appreciate some guidance because every night when she realizes that her door is locked she is not happy and I do feel mean.
