After my mom's extreme sundowning activities overwhelmed by father (who is 77 and nine years into a Parkinson's diagnosis himself) we were finally forced to take her to ER, as she refuses any type of medical intervention at home. We've spent a horrible six days in the hospital, during which my mom was given Haldol (an extreme anti-psychotic) for an episode. Since then, her despondency, anger, etc. has now become an all-day thing. We're working with geriatric healthcare navigator/advocate and were able to get her moved to a geriatric psych facility in the area (not our first choice, but not the last choice either). Our hope is that they will stabilize her so that we can move her into a much higher-quality, pleasant memory care facility near our house. We worry that if she doesn't stabilize, she'll just get kicked out of whatever long-care solution we find. But, my brother just followed the ambulance to the facility and said it terrible. I'm concerned that it seems like this whole experience so far has made things worse, rather than better. Does anyone have experience with Alzheimer's patients in geriatric psych units with good or bad outcomes? I'd love to hear your suggestions and thoughts.
