My mom's dementia got increasingly worse in the nights leading up to the last full moon (March 20). She was extremely agitated, wide awake until 3 am, trying to take her clothes off, wanting to get up and make the bed in the middle of the night, her sentences were completely nonsensical and frequently I couldn't even distinguish words at all, even though she was "talking". Then about 2 days after the full moon, she was back to her usual dementia symptoms.
I'm guessing there's not much I can do other than be prepared for some really long, bad nights? Does anyone have additional experience for how long it lasts? It seems that it got worse about 3 nights leading up to the full moon, then 2 days after, she was back to her usual.
