I have just been to stay for a few days where my mum is in the home. She is settling well - been there 4 weeks. The home is very good with excellent staff and the other residents are lovely. The only thing is - is mum wanders at night. At present she has a 1to1 carer at night who stays outside the bedroom. Reading through the notes, she sleeps fitfully for 5 to 15 minutes at a time and then gets up, wanders around the room, back to bed, on to the chair, along the corridor and down in the lounges. She can get to the stairs and has been found on them - not holding on to banisters as she has her (broken) right arm and the stair lift is on the left. Somehow she manages to stay awake all day - doesn't go to bed before 10.00 at night. She is not on any medication. She has also started having 'hallucinations' at night.
The other thing, I found a little disconcerting is that all the residents except mum go to bed quite early, which leaves her on her own in the lounge although the carers are around - she's not left alone but that is unsettling for her.
