hello. how have some of you handled the problem of the caregiver being awakened lmost every nite by the altzheimers patient screaming and yelling? the patient is on arisept. the caregiver, 84 yrs. old, is beginning to show complete exhaustion and is being admitted to hospital for atrial fibrillation(heart) probs. is there medication for the patient so that the caregiver can possibly get rest? are there behavioral techniques he could utilize? he is very capable and mentally strong, and we hate to see him lose all his financial independence by placing her in a home. she is 90 and in excellent health otherwise. thank you for anyone with a possible solution. sally
