He is slowly bumping up haldol but she is frail and right now 1.5 mg is what they can put her at... she has a top rated doctor. Occu0pational therapists have all resisted any further help because she herself says she can't and won't do it and they all say they have other patients who are on waiting lists who really want the help, so... She just insists her med is taking away what eyesight she has and she has five different doctores telling her that is all a bunch of bull

She hits herself? She needs a bump up in her dosage of Haldol.

But being blind would make anyone crazy. Have you spoken to her Dr. about getting an occupational therapist to your house to help her a couple of times a week? Maybe if she can feel more comfortable in her abilities she might be able to settle down.
