My mother is 93 and has dementia. Even though she takes enough meds that should help her get a good night's sleep...anxiety and depression med at night and also risperidone during the day...at times she will not want to go to bed at night or may finally settle down middle of night or just before daylight. Sometimes she doesn't even nap during the day after not sleeping well at night. At times she will sleep all the next day and then will most certainly have a problem going to sleep at night. I am exhausted and that's an understatement during these times. Just wondering does anyone else have this issue and how do you handle encouraging your loved one to at least lay down. If I can get her to do this she will go to sleep. My mother is at a point where she doesn't understand hardly anything I ask her to do. I am not new to the forum but I mostly read others posts to help me on this difficult journey and it has helped tremendously...thank you all.
