We have just moved my mother-in-law into our home. My husband works and I will be her primary caregiver. I will be working with a team of doctors and would like to use home health care. She is 87 and has congestive heart failure, stage 4 renal disease, and type 2 diabetes. The past several years she has stayed up until 2-3 am reading and sleeping in her chair. Then she goes to bed and sleeps until noon. The doctor has stressed to her that a schedule is imperative because of taking her medicines on a regular time frame to avoid dialysis. How should we change her schedule and how much should she be sleeping? She wants to sleep all the time. I am having to constantly wake her up to give her medicines to her. I know that she is 87 years old but I am trying to give her the proper care. She was living by herself in an assisted living facility that prepared her meals and home health was coming on a weekly basis to fill her medicine box. I am now preparing her meals and dispensing her medicines. Any help would be appreciated. This has been a real challenge!!
