My Mom in NH is usually pretty good in the morning and afternoon as far as taking her meds for the LPNs. They are ground and in pudding or applesauce. I’ve watched them and it seems to go pretty routinely. I am getting reports that she’s spitting out her nighttime meds...which includes her melatonin for sleep and her ultram and Tylenol for pain. Then she doesn’t sleep very well. After a few attempts the LPNs can’t/won’t keep trying since the mantra is they can’t tell how much she actually kept in her mouth. My question is does anyone have some good tricks? Should I ask them to put it in her food or ice cream? I’m wondering if she even needs the ultram because she doesn’t seem any worse off the next day after spitting it out.
