My mom has dementia and Parkinson's disease. I asked my dad about it. He said he knew they sedated her some because she was hard to handle. He has been there when she refused meds or to have her diaper changed, and said she is still very strong and they could hardly handle her. But I need her to be somewhat alert so I can at least talk to her some, touch for comfort, etc. Is this normal to be so sedated?
