MIL in assisted living with dementia. We realize the disease is progressing but thought she was holding her own well enough. Today we got a call from the AL to tell us that for the past couple of days she has forgotten how to feed herself and the staff has had to feed her. I can't help but think it is coincidental that a couple of weeks ago she just started a new med (Seroquel) and also was being treated for a UTI. Could this just be a side effect of getting used to the Seroquel? Staff does not seem to think it is meds related.
I would really appreciate opinions and suggestions. I feel they are trying to push us to get her into a nursing home. Help - I am so stressed out about this! Thank you!
