Mom will be 85 and has dementia. Both my husband and I stay with her and go home every other weekend to get some rest. Like clock work everynight at 12:00 a.m. the madness begins. She is up calling my name so I get up and go to her room. She wanders downstairs or wanders through out the other bedroom. I try to keep her awake throughout the day, and take her with me to run errands, hoping she will be tired and sleep throughout the night, and she still wakes up! I have also started giving her melotonin 5mg, however there is no change in her sleeping habits. Both my husband and I have to bring her back to bed multiple times through out the night. By the time we need to get up to go to work we are both exhausted. ... I have thought of asking the doctor for something to help her sleep, only it worries me that she will be groggy when going to the bathroom and may fall. She also has stairs in her home and the bedrooms are upstairs. Appreciate your thoughts or experience with this issue. Thank you.
