Mom was diagnosed with mid-late stage Dem/Alz about 4 years ago and up to this point I've been able to deal with everything somehow, more or less, but this is going to be impossible. Mom has now started to turn off the A/C during the day, we've been having 85+ degree days and I sleep during the day since I work 3rd shift, and wake up in a pool of sweat. Our house is a 2 story single family that was converted into a 2 unit back in the 50's when Gr-Gramma got deathly sick. There is only 1 thermo and that's downstairs. She says it's not hot and open the windows and turn on the fan. Yah right! Upstairs averages 90+ daily w/o the A/C and I take 2 presc. sedatives to sleep because it's hard for me to sleep during the day; high circadian rhythm; and the 2 new families that moved in are, and this is going to sound so wrong, are like rednecks. They're like the guys with the 4wd monster truck in the bookings.com commercial, at all hours of the day and night. I can deal with it on my 1 day off, which is a Wed but other than that, it's he11 to get to sleep...I digressed, sorry. I need some kind of bluetooth or Wi-Fi thermostat that I can install downstairs. My laptop has both and I can access it that way. I just can't deal with waking up in a 94 degree pool of sweat after maybe just being able to doze off for 3 hours. Last week just did it for me. I woke up and it was 97 up here and she had the HEAT on because she was cold and it was 80 outside! I try to keep her windows open and the doors too, they both are the older heavy screen doors with the fancy glass opening windows on them. She says she keeps them shut because she doesn't want anyone looking in. There's no option to put in a window unit because all these windows are different sizes but the sills are only 2 ft off the floor so it's useless to get one and they are very expensive to run. Also, I have the windows in the bedroom covered with black const. paper and and Styrofoam, not noticeable from the outside, to keep the light out and noise down. Waking up in that heat everyday for the last week negates ALL the benefit of trying to sleep and the cost of the sedatives. What am I to do????
