Mom wakes at least 2-3 times a night. She is bedridden and has a colostomy bag and diaper. She can not walk but at 3am insists she can and now is physically fighting me to get out of hospital bed in living room, where I also sleep. Adivan not working as it once did. I am suffering with bad back and lack of good sleep. Made decision to begin hospice care in home this week. We have had palliative care last couple months. Pray I will get more care and answers for both of us by doing this now. Realizing that, after all she has been through in last few months physically, her mind did not keep up. Overwhelmed physically and mentally at this point for both of us. Are there good safe sleep aids for elderly dementia patients??? I don't want to give her anything that would make things worse. I have heard that dementia/Alzheimer's patients should be careful about sleep aids. Right now we are both suffering.
