I know that I am posting on the wrong board but I haven't got any replies yet on the alzheimer's board. My father is fixing to have to go in the nursing home. He has not been sleeping at night or much in the daytime. The doctors have tried haldol,demoral, ambien, benedryl, ativan and temazepam to help him sleep. None of these work, in fact they make his alzheimers worse. Does anybody have any suggestions that we could try?
I would like for him to be sleeping at night before he goes to the nursing home. If he's not, it's going to be a disaster because they will just drug him up and that will make him more confused. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
