I just zoomed with DDís group home manager. We had taken DD back home Sunday night after the required Covid quarantine was over. She got out of the car on her own, and was content in her room. We stayed several hours hooking up her tv high enough that she couldnít pull it off the wall, which she had done twice before we took her home. She was content when we left. Settled into bed and ready to sleep. They reported today that she hasnít stopped screaming since we left Sunday night. She hasnít slept or eaten. Just screams. I donít know what to do. If I go get her when this happens, sheíll never readjust to her home, but how can I not go get her. I also am taking care of DHís 91 year old mother, who needs to have help with nearly everything. Iím at my witís end. DH is busy with things at work, and most of the care of DD and MIL is falling on me. Please, prayer warriors. I need your prayers.

This is such a hard place to be in, I am so sorry.

Iím not sure of how communicative she is but I know she just had Covid. Even though is sounds like it was a mild case, could there be something bothering her health wise that she isnít able to to communicate effectively?

Unfortunately, it may just take a few more days for her to settle back in.
Are you able to zoom or FaceTime with her?

She doesnít really communicate well enough to talk back, but sometimes I can calm her down. I think Iím going to try calling and seeing if it helps. Iím afraid of making it worse.

Thinking of you and sending prayers.

My mother has dementia and is in a secure memory unit. When mom was moved from assisted living to her new room, she ran the halls yelling and screaming. A few meds were adjusted and she eventually settled/acclimated.

I know this is SO hard. I hope your DD adjusts quickly. (((hugs)))

I wonder about some kind of secondary infection after her Covid? Maybe she has an ear infection or something, but can't communicate other than to scream about being in pain/uncomfortable. It might be worth having a doctor check her out before taking her back to your house. I'm sorry.

I too am wondering about a secondary infection. I had a zoom meeting with the person who manages her meds this afternoon, and sheís taking her off one med thatís supposed to help her sleep, and putting her on something a little stronger. I also suggested that they give her stickers and something to stick them on. Sometimes that calms her. Thank you for the prayers and good thoughts.

Linda,
I am so sorry this is happening. You must be so stressed and exhausted.
Could she possibly have a UTI or an earache? My first thought was some kind of physical pain.

Prayers for sure, Linda. It's so difficult when we want to swoop in and rescue our child, and yet that's not always best.

Along with checking her out medically and possibly calling/facetiming, is there any sort of soothing song, story, or routine that you would do to calm her at home? If so, could you record it or do it virtually?

Would she respond well to a warm bath? Quiet music? Someone gently rubbing her forehead?

How's it going Linda2671? I like the suggestion about checking for an ear Infection. Covid19 can present as an ear problem and your dd wouldn't be able to communicate to you that her ears are ringing and / or hurting. I hope you all get some rest tonight.

Things seem to have settled down some. The staff members who know her are back now, and sheís able to respond better to them. Theyíve also made a medication change. Theyíre still quarantined until the Fourth of July, and weíre hoping things will get back to normal then.
