My mom has been at an assisted living facility for about 4 months. She seemed to be doing really well, tells me how much she likes it, staff are friendly, etc. She can't remember much so she can't tell me what goes on during the day. Today I was visiting and the adminstrator pulls me aside and tells me that mom has started waking up in the night and comes out of her room and is confused. They are suggesting moving her to a room that is further away from the entrance so it's less likely she will just walk out. she also said that mom was speaking up in meetings, basically saying whatever she's thinking, and it was bothering other residents. Nothing inappropriate. that doesn't sound like my mom, but I know behaviors can change. I'm freaking out a little. the administrator doesn't want to put mom in memory care and neither do I, but not sure what to suggest to keep mom from wandering at night. One thought was to give her something to help her sleep the night, but i'm afraid that's a slippery slope. another idea was for her to be more physically active during the day- she's gained weight since moving in and is losing track of day and night, keeps her curtains shut all the time. also thought maybe putting a sign on the door at night that reminds her where she is and encourages her to go back to bed. any other ideas out there?
