I have been reading the posts of all you lovely people for several months now. My mum is 82 and my dad of 84 has looked after her for at least five hard years. Following bowel surgery he has had to admit defeat and my lovely mum is now in care. We all worry as we know how bad she was at home during the night. Sleeping for very short periods and wanting to get out of bed and generally being very agitated and restless. She cannot stand, walk or get out of bed unaided. Not surprisingly she fell from the bed at the weekend and ended up in A & E. Fortunately no bad injuries only a bruised face. Does anyone know of anything that could make her less agitated at night and help her sleep. It is very difficult for her to explain her own behaviour she just says she doesn't know!!!!!
Any suggestions would be appreciated xx
