I went back to an old thread on namenda causing aggression in dementia patients. I am not sure that this med is causing it, I just think this is her personality exponentially magnified with dementia. She is due to mental health eval on the 17th to see if some other med needs to be added. I have read that seroquel is often added, and spoke to charge nurse last night asking if that is used. Yes, often.
No matter who goes to see my mother, these angry outbursts are relentless. If you can't 'spring' her, don't come back. Her grandchildren and great grandchild won't be going back.
Does this ever stop?
One nurse says we should not tell her about sale of her property. However to try to convince her she now lives at memory care, we might have to.
