My 94 y/o mom was diagnosed with dementia about 18 months ago, although she has even steadily declining cognitively for several years. She has had about 6 TIA’s in the past two months. She lives independently in a senior living facility where two meals, cleaning and laundry are provided. Her social life revolves around the community meals. I have a video camera in her place where I can check in at any time. She’s still able to take her meds that I place in pill packs which she takes morning and evening. Mostly she is lucid and can carry on a conversation, other times its wash, rinse, repeat. Recently, she’s has been having very vivid dreams and cannot distinguish the dreams from reality. She has suffered from sundowning, hallucinations and some psychotic episodes in the past when hospitalized. Her latest thing is waking up at 3:30 in the morning, but then taking a long morning nap before lunch and a long afternoon nap before dinner - about 2 hours each. Then off to bed at 7:00. I know I will have to eventually take her in, but I’m not sure of the right time to do it. Pre-dementia, she has always said that she didn’t want to move in with me or my brother and I haven’t brought the subject up with her lately. With sundowning I fear the change, but then wonder if now would be better than waiting. I’ve read articles trying to put her at a stage, but her symptoms overlap. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks in advance.
