Mom is 88yr and is now Hospice, I take care of my mother at my apartment. She is barely breathing, but when she has these blast from the past or something she become agitated, combative and uncooperative. Now, I have had her in a nursing home (dementia) center and like others on the forum they had her like a zombie and left nasty. So I decided to take her out for what I was paying them, I can let her be that way myself. I wouldn't, but I'm just saying. Right now, Hospice has given me something to calm her and I don't give it to her all time or she would be a zombie. My question to you guys is, what do I do when it only happens during the early morning hours like midnight until 7am? Then I'm exhausted, frustrated and lost. I'm taking Respite next week but then I must return, then what???
