He is 81, she is 80 & even though they live where they can get help she still is up with him all night and then wonders why she is so exhausted. She is his security blanket & he touches her all night & can't go to sleep with out her. He wants to go bed at 7 pm. Then he gets up to go to the bathroom but he has accidents and makes a mess and may fall changing his depend. She wants to go to her doctor so he can give her something to fix it and I really think it is just because she is so worn out. But she shoots down absolutely every solution I offer her. Go sleep down the hall for a few nights so you can rest. (No, it would be unfamiliar and she couldn't rest well.) Have him stay with us (No, it is too much trouble). Move him to an Alzheimer's unit (no, that would kill him). But I'm afraid what she is currently doing is actually going to kill her. Does anyone have any suggestions? Would my dad get used to sleeping by himself at night? He does worry greatly about her & I do worry this would cause a progression of his disease. But I also worry she might die from exhaustion and then he will die anyway because if she isn't around at all that would be the end of him. Thank you for your help.
