My mother abused me when I was a child. Actually she beat the snot out of me almost every day, until I was old enough to learn to hide until she gone or asleep. Now she is in end stage AD and she is in a lovely private facility and I am her only child living here. But she is the meanest patient they have. She has slapped other residents, slapped the nursing staff and tried to bite them and has tried to bite me many times. Most of the residents are happy and always smiling. She never smiled anyway but she won't smile for them either. I wonder if she will get meaner as the disease progresses? She is on lots of anti-depressants and it doesn't seem to make a difference.
 
Will it just get worse?
 
Thank you,

Hi there I am so sorry that your Mom has AD and the fact that she is aggressive is hard too .......sorry for all you have had to go thru .....you say end stages how bad is she right now ........sometimes the meds they give will make them worse IMO ....there hasnt been alot of research done for those wth AD and for the proper meds to help they can either have the person drugged up and not doing anything at all or not the proper meds in them .......Do you happen to know what meds she is on and sounds like she has always been like this .I am so sorry ..........Hoping to hear back from you.....I really dont know if it will get worse or not I would be hoping they would have her on something and how is the workers in the home .......I bumped up the homes for you to check is she isn one of them ....be well and God Bless......

Do you know what medications your Mom is on?Seroquel can help in some people.If they have her on Xanax,or other Benzo medications it can make matters worse.
