More and more these days my bedbound MIL is always awake. She stares a lot but never seems to sleep. Her bed is in my living room/kitchen area and if I enter or leave the room, she starts talking a bit - well sundown-like behavior.
She used to take Seroquel for combativeness and it worked for a while but then the results reversed on us. So no drugs now for over a month. She is still able to talk - but fewer words.
I feel bad that she is laying there staring at nothing. I try to interact with her and play music and tv and we have therapists come 3 days/wk with hospice.
But, she NEVER seems to sleep.
Is that okay?
Sometimes she is very restless and nothing seems to satisfy her.
