My uncle has Parkinsons and becomes catatonic overnight. His body is completely rigid during the night and into the morning. The assisted living facility is unable to feed him the medication but can only hand it to him for self intake. We have had his doctors try a slow release med overnight however he is at the end stages of PD and there is not much of an effect to make him more mobile at waking.
Has anyone any suggestion as to solving the issue of having him take his own meds? Any contraption so he can take it himself? We are looking to hire a personal aide aside from the assisted living aides to administer the meds. Also considering moving him out into an accessible apartment unit where he would live with a live-in caregiver or three.
