And drink stays wake for about 10- 15 minutes and right back to sleep had two bouts with dehydration and 1 with Uti and 1 with low hemoglobin a fast heart rate, before this was sitting up 5 or 6 hours per day.
The hard part is over.
I'm matching you with one of our specialists who will be calling you in the next few minutes.
Is Grandmother taking any new medicine that might make her feel very sleepy? That can add more hours to her sleep cycle. Blood pressure pills can drown one out.
Are there things that Grandmother can do? Boredom can put someone to sleep quickly, I know it does for me and I am only in my 70's. I can fall asleep in front of the computer :P
Have Grandmother checked to see is she is low on vitamin B12 or any other vitamins. That might help if there is one or two on the low side to be increased.
I'm sorry you're having to go through this worrying experience. Take consolation from keeping your grandmother as comfortable and easy in her mind as you can. Please let us know how you're getting on.
