Assalammualaikum..HealthReplies.com, My name is Receipt, I am from Padang Pariaman, I want to ask you, my grandmother at home is often nervous, even unable to be quiet, often also when it’s night screaming u0026amp; speak for yourself in a loud tone, sometimes I feel so irritated, why is that? Can you give me sleeping pills, but what is a safe sleeping pill for you?
Thank you for the question.
As we get older, the condition of one's body and mind is no longer as optimal as before. This is what makes the elderly often become more sensitive, irritable, easily offended, often cry without cause, often talk without clear goals, anxiety, difficulty remembering, or also experience other physical complaints, such as weakness, fatigue, sleep disturbance, disturbances diet, and so on. Unsupportive environmental conditions, including if no relatives are paying attention, can make these complaints even worse. It is not impossible, a condition that was initially reasonable because part of the aging process, instead developed into a psychiatric disorder, such as depression, bipolar disorder, hypochondriasis, delusional disorders, or schizophrenia.
Of course, you do not want this condition to happen right? The best step to address the condition of the elderly like your grandmother is to increase empathy. Understand, that all conditions are common, and do not always refer to psychiatric disorders. Giving your grandmother any sleeping medicine is not a wise solution. Because, as he gets older, his body's ability to metabolize drugs properly will decrease. Impact, the administration of drugs that are not accompanied by clear medical indications, a higher risk of causing it to experience dangerous side effects, including allergies, kidney disorders, digestive disorders, and so on.
As a good grandchild, do the following steps:
Accompany your grandmother in carrying out her daily activities. Help him if you have trouble doing something, for example when dressing, pooping, and so on. Prepare all the needs as you can.
Frequently invite him to talk, heart to heart, help him pour out all the gaps that block in his heart.
Reassure your grandmother that all family members love and care for her, not care, let alone leave her.
If your grandmother ordered something, do it as long as it's good. If it is not good, or contrary to your beliefs, reject it in a good way, do not rebel let alone rebuke him.
Invite your grandmother to mingle with the people she loves, and who love her.
Accompany him to do things that he likes, such as doing hobbies, vacations, and so on
Ask your grandmother to be more relaxed, not think of anything unnecessary, give her the understanding that everything will be fine, without worrying too much
Coordinate with other relatives to look after your grandmother, don't leave her alone for long, let alone to carry out dangerous activities alone, such as cooking or driving
Remind your grandmother to always lead a healthy life, starting from waking up early, bathing and eating regularly, drinking enough, taking the time to exercise as much as possible, sleeping too early, and not smoking
Do not carelessly give any medicine or supplement to your grandmother, without a doctor's prescription
If your grandmother's condition is already very disturbing, not only for you, but also for other relatives nearby, you can consult further with a doctor or a specialist in a geriatric sub-specialist regarding your grandmother's condition in order to provide the right solution.
Hope this helps ...
