I just move my father in with me. He’s 75 years old and was diagnosed with Parkinson’s five years ago. He was OK for about the first week. I have been very careful to give all medicines on time and on schedule. We saw the neurologist and she made a minor change to his dosing schedule (We increased the night time extended release sinemet from one tablet to two tablets at bedtime). She also suggested he take 0.25 mg clonozapam for REM behavior sleep disorder.
My sister has some dementia but the worse thing with her PK is she is unable to take care of her toilet needs. Assisted living doesn't have the staff to help each time and memory care seems way too harsh - she's already depressed. Suggestions? She also can't stay asleep which I see is a common problem.
