Elderly 60 Years Old Behaves Strangely After Being Left Out Of Town?
November 25, 2019, 20: 34 Good night … I want to ask .. My daddy is over 60 … Since my younger sibling lives out of town … My dad is getting weird … I can say it’s not normal .. Every night when I sleep triak .. Sometimes I hear a sound that is not there .. Like people are confused … Quickly forget … The difference is lemes … Staggered / shaking … And often sleep … But sleep is not calm down … keep on moving .. also not clear
Thank you for the question.
Elderly who likes to shout when sleeping, hear sounds that are not real, confusion, easy to forget, easily limp, staggering, trembling, often asleep, not calm while sleeping, and impaired communication ability can indeed be a sign of stress, including due to the loss of people loved (in this case your little sister).
However, in more extreme cases, these complaints can also indicate a psychiatric disorder, such as depression, delusional disorders, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, even schizophrenia. Organic disorders, such as strokes, migraines, alcoholism, head injuries, brain or membrane infections, hormonal disorders, etc. may also trigger complaints like yours.
This condition should be consulted directly to a doctor or psychiatrist. Because, doctors need to conduct in-depth psychiatric interviews, or also other supporting tests, such as blood tests, brain records, and so on to rule out other diseases that may require different treatments.
In the meantime, what needs to be done as a child is:
Be a good listener, invite your father to talk a lot, about what unsettles him, and help him find a solution
Don't make your father sad, afraid, worry too much
Don't let your father daydream, fantasize, or be alone for too long
Accompany your father in living a healthy lifestyle, including by exercising, eating healthy food, not smoking, staying away from drugs and alcohol
Invite your father to do activities that he likes and can make him calm, for example on vacations, do hobbies, worship, gather with loved ones
Do not judge your father's condition, do not also be rude to him
Do not carelessly give your father drugs or supplements without consulting a doctor first
Hope this helps ...
