I wonder if anyone can advise me. I'm involved in caring for an elderly relative with severe PD. The incidence of falls suddenly became worse a few weeks ago and he is currently in hospital following one of these falls. They told us that the frequency may have increased due to a minor infection.
I understand that the efficacy of the meds can reduce over time. However, since being hospitalised, there has been a sudden deterioration in his mental state,particularly rationality. Can any changes in efficacy occur over a few days? I can't imagine that this would be the case. We're trying to understand what may be going on. Brain CT is clear and the doctors are considering changing his meds. They're all so busy it's hard to get time with them especially as he believes we're colluding with them and we can't be seen talking with them.
If anyone can offer any advice I'd be most grateful!
