As a registered nurse and caregiver for elderly mother in law, I have experienced the same situation. The symptoms your mom experienced are common in the elderly, and sometimes may be the first symptom seen with urinary tract infections. My mother in law (who has a diagnosis of dementia), had to have her psych meds adjusted following her UTI. Not only are we happier and better able to care for her; but she is happier also! Win - win situation! If your mom is not diagnosed with dementia, you may want to pursue this possibility with her doctor privately. We made an appointment with my mother in law's doctor without her being present (which her insurance paid for) to discuss this issue to provide the least embarrassment to her. Maybe this will give you some ideas. Blessings in a difficult situation!
