Resolved Question:

My mother is aged 94 and has late-stage Alzheimer’s. She is confined to bed and receives 24 hour care from care providers in the family home. Over the last few weeks she has been very disturbed at night, calling out loudly in a constant repetitive manner and moving her legs in a very energetic way which eventually exhausts her. I would like advice as to what medication should be prescribed to minimise these aspects. My mother is Type 2 diabetic and is on insulin injections.

I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still need assistance from one of the Professionals.
