I moved mom to ALF a month ago. She was not happy-- mean and moody. (She gets this way every time we have moved her.) The Nurse Practioner said Depakote worked great for this and would calm her too. But she seems to have bad days on it. Worse memory, dead stare, just out of it. I've read Depakote is not right for dementia. Anyone else have experience with it? She is also on Zoloft and tiny tiny dose of Klonopin which seemed ok in rehab to calm her.
