We are in an area affected by forest fires and our air quality is unhealthy according to airnow.gov. This started on Thursday and my mom has been sleeping more and is very irritable. This is how she is when she's had a UTI. Once the infection is cleared, she is back to her pleasant self. She just cleared up a UTI and we have an appointment on Tuesday with the doctor to follow up with another UA.
But in the meantime, I'm wondering if the air pollution is hard on her. We are taking all of the safety precautions, windows are closed and she has an air purifier in her room. But I know the air in our house is not as good as normal because of my own symptoms.
Has anyone experienced this happening to some one they know with dementia?
