Getting Up In Middle Of Night

Getting Up In Middle Of Night

My mother gets up in the middle of the night and is found on the couch with a gallon of ice cream and a spatula. This happens every night. Isn't there a way to get her to sleep through the night? Anyone? I really need help.

When my wife was getting up in the night (and frequently falling), I installed heavy duty bed rails to prevent her from getting up. I suffered from a guilty feeling that I was holding her against her will, but that guilt was better than multiple trips to the ER at 2:00 AM. There were no more nighttime falls once the rails were installed.

Maybe see if her doctor can prescribe a sleep aid, like Ambian (not sure of the spelling), or even try a Benadryl?
