Mom has dementia? Usually when a person with dementia becomes combative, it means she’s possibly having a reaction to meds or needs one she’s not getting. There are many medications for anxiety in dementia patients. Call her doctor and share with them what’s going on.

When she went to doctors for uti. I told them she was showing systems of sundowning when it got to be 5:00. He put her on trazadone but only at night and that did help with her going to bed a a reasonable time. She was also cleared of a uti. This whole combative thing started when we got home from doctors

She has dementia also had a slight uti she was put on antibiotics. The doctor just cleared her that the urine was fine. Came home from doctors and that was when it started. She has been on the antibiotics for a week and it was given her a loose bowel. That is why this is so much worse. There is poo everywhere

She did have one but was just cleared by her doctor. I didn’t call him yet because I keep thinking it will go back to the way it was. I just can’t keep on fighting with her it is both physically and emotionally draining
