I don't know what medications your uncle considers tranquilizers, but I agree keeping her comfortable should be utmost. Many people with dementia have under met needs for pain and calmative medications, in part, because they no longer communicate effectively or at least self report symptoms.

A family member suffered terribly with a virulent Parkinson's (strong and rapidly progressing) as his relative hauled him to alternative medicine practioners in effort to stave off pharmaceutical treatment. Finally, when given some basic meds, he felt so much better.

His relative meant well, but she was just too scared to think clearly for awhile. Ailing is not an easy time.

Best to you and your grandmother.
