My husband is very agitated fr early evening to the time I put him in to bed. He fights, argues, hits & get grabs my arms and pushes me away, pushinge down or twists my arm. He is very strong and can get very aggressive. He says no to everything at night. Are these signs if sundowners & if so what can I do?
My husband often sleeps 24 hours and up and about 24hours. Just now he has been up for 36 hours and no sign of him needing to sleep. He's ok but confused and wanting to "go home" I make sure he has food and drink, is this a medical condition as well as Alzeimers
Fortunately I get some sleep or I could not function.
Our family dr cut his pain meds from six a day to three a day. He constantly says come on please all day and into the night. I think it's because his back is hurting and the Alzheimer's increases the agony. I'm going crazy here. I need help.
Hi, does anyone have any experience of any prolonged use of L-arginine with people with alzheimer's?

It all seems psychological. If we go to a movie, even if he went to the bathroom just before we went in, 5 minutes later he neds to go again. It’s driving me nuts. Is this a common symptom?
Sorry to bother again (I'm fairly new to this scene!!) but is it common in people with AZ/Dementia to see flashing lights ?? My husband spoke of this and it has been a real struggle and taken 3 weeks or more but I eventually got him to attend an Optician appt and they checked his eyes out thoroughly and there is no evidence of a detached retina or anything going on with his eyes, so I wondered if this is maybe a 'hallucination' or something like that which ive heard of?? Any ideas… read more
How do I approach asking my dad to shower, to be cleaner.? He is not changing his clothes often enough as well. My mom is his main caregiver, and this is so stressful for her.
Yesterday I told her it was my anniversary. She said, "No it's not." It's the same with everything I say. I have run out of things to talk about because it's always No. And I don't argue with her. So what do I do?
