We moved Mom to a nursing home a month ago. They are having a lot of trouble with her being awake all night and trying to get up every five minutes. Is this part of the sundown syndrome, or is it just because she is still adjusting? The tranquilizer the doctor prescribed obviously doesn't get her to sleep. They end up having to put her in a recliner in front of the nurses station all night. When sis got there this am, they had put her to bed, finally to sleep at 6am.
Since she was in IL and AL until then, we have no way of knowing if she was up all night for years because she had her own room or apartment.
