It’s for these reasons and more why I say THANK YOU CHICAGO. I thank you for the daily support that you have shown me, my business and my team. In addition to that, your inspiration has served as a MAJOR platform for me to work and inspire others. You have shown me true evidence that greatness is measured by how much YOU give back, support and share. I thank you for fueling the desire to get better EVERYDAY at my craft…with NO APOLOGIES. And I love it! Chicagoans are always working to make it. For every level that we attain, we have our eye on the next one. Working hard is our #dna and the world already knows it.
I really feel for you right now. I’ve had my mom for over a year, though for five mos. I got a break and put her in a private home, big mistake. I’ve had her back now for nearly a month. Nights are bad, she wakes up and thinks I have alligators in my house and last night we had killers in the house. Not sure if the bad dreams are part of sundowners or not but she has mass confusion after dinner. Never doubt your decision, it’s best for your dad and family, you may feel guilty that’s normal but trust me if your happy with her care then she’s in ther Right place. Right now we are currently waiting for a new memory care to open, sometime in July. Bi hope I can last that long. Good luck to you.
An assessment for an underlying cause of behavior is needed before prescribing antipsychotic medication for symptoms of dementia .  Antipsychotics in old age dementia showed a modest benefit compared to placebo in managing aggression or psychosis, but this is combined with a fairly large increase in serious adverse events. Thus, antipsychotics should not be used routinely to treat dementia with aggression or psychosis, but may be an option in a few cases where there is severe distress or risk of physical harm to others.  Psychosocial interventions may reduce the need for antipsychotics.
