My sister (49 yrs old) has been claiming over the last few months that staff enters her room & moves the head/foot of the bed up & down to make her uncomfortable. In the last few days she has claimed that she was sexually assaulted during the overnight.
When we talk it out, she tells me that it didn't happen and that she "made a mistake". She cries because she's sad that she's making claims that could affect the staff & their employment status. She's ashamed & embarrassed of the things she says once she's had time to think it out, but she doesn't seem to have any control when she first wakes up & makes the claims. At the time, she believes it to be true.
She has lived there for more than 8 years & she loves it. I've asked her if she wants to move, but she says no, this is my home. The staff are wonderful to her, but people are afraid to assist her for fear they will be accused of something.
I'm concerned that there could be something more going on with her neurologically? I've spoken to the Director of Nursing, they've had her speak with a psychiatrist and they are going to change her medication.
Is there something more that I need to do?
