my 85 yr old mother has alzheimers (but high functioning) and we finally got her a months respite at an assisted living. she started to run around at night, opening doors, then packing a suitcase and banging around during the day too. then the next minute she was ok, participating (somewhat), and lucid. when i went over to calm her, she was fine. but after 4 days i was asked to either stay with her 24/7 for the remainder of the month or hire someone! i took her back to her home (she lives alone, which is why we are trying to get her somewhere). Then I was told by the "community liaison", who had been getting to know my mom for weeks before this, that she isnt a good candidate for memory care (my next step) because of her behavior. i'm guessing they are not eager to deal with behavioural issues, and she doesnt want to see her drugged out there. Meanwhile, my brother got her neurologist to prescribe seroquel, but she cant self administer at night alone. I think a psych eval before i even pickup her meds is needed - and then rethink the next step. meds for anxiety? (dementia only facility? she is very healthy and active, no meds, etc).
