My mother is 89 yrs. old and is suffering with late stage Alzheimer s. Her recent worsening condition presents itself with delusions, hallucinations, trouble putting a sentence or thought together. I think she forgets it before she can speak it. Are there online geriatric psychiatrists who can prescribe medicines? She has seen two in the last year, who were both there on a temporary basis. Now the second one is leaving, and we have no-one to see her at her residence. She is in need of an educated experienced Psychiatrist who can continue care until she dies.

My husband,68 years old, was 8 years back diagnosed as suffering from drug induced Parkinson s disease together with Alzheimer s disease. He was administered a drug called Donep .After the first dose of the tablet itself, due to nonstop vomitting we were forced to take him off Donep. This was in 2003.The doctor said that there was no alternative medicine( at that tim) and nothing much could be done to help him. My husband has been a schizophrenic since very long for which he had taken treatment since 1979. Now, he is in a very poor state. He is highly demented.Till about a month back he was being given Placidin - 50 mg 2 times a day and Lonazep .5mg at night time. Right now he is not being given any medicine. He is almost bedridden. Please tell me if anything can be done at this late stage.Is there a treatment for Alzheimer s disease?

My husband is in late stages of Alzheimers and is in a memory care unit. The nurse called this morning to say he is having continuous arm jerking and a slight swelling around his mouth. He is on an antibiotic for a UTI and she thinks it could be a reaction to the med. However, it could also be a stroke. I don t want to prolong his life, so I asked her to wait before sending him to the hospital. Guess I am worried about what I don t know about a stroke being debiltating. Not sure what to ask... Thanks, Patricia
