My 94 year old mother in law has been diagnosed with moderate dementia/Alzheimer's disease. She lives in a lovely assisted living apartment and has been there for 2 months. We have recently seen a geriatric neurologist and she is on an anti-depressant (has been for 6 weeks). However, her cognitive abilities are rapidly declining and all she does is cry. She calls the family constantly and thinks she's been abandoned and everyone hates her. Nothing we say reassures her or makes her feel better. She just can't stop crying. I think she needs to be on an anti-anxiety med. Any input or feedback is appreciated.
