I have been caring for my 89 year old mother for three years in my home. We have day help, but at night it's just me and Mom. She roams around and does some dangerous things--going outside, climbing in the bathtub alone and then screaming for help. I'm becoming sleep deprived and stressed out. Of course she suffers too from not sleeping. I have found nothing that is guaranteed to make her sleep at night. I've tried everything from Ambien to Tylenol PM. Nothing works consistently. Can anyone suggest a medication that will solve our problem? I kept her at home to prevent her bing "zombinized" at a Nursing Home. It's beginning to look like that is the only solution. Please help somebody!
