Hi About 6 months ago I managed to get the hospital doctor to visit my mum who put on a very good act so he told her she doesnt have dementia but that she had had a nervous breakdown. However as the months pass it is very clear that she does have some sort dementia, she has not idea about dates, what day it is, when she has appts, she gets lost in her small bungalow, she is having visual hallucination continually, she is finding doing the simplest of tasks a problem, she has children in the house (all in her imagination) and pulls wires out of the back of the tv so they cant hurt themselves. She talks to people who are not there whilst you are visiting, she gets incredibly angry if challenged on any of this so am at a complete loss as to what to do. She wont visit the doctor and I feel I cant help her. She is a virtual recluse, she wont go out anywhere (just shopping in town once a week), when you visit an odd day she will seem relatively normal and then others.... This is all a very brief outline of some of the things that are happening. She has just phoned me to ask what time I am picking her up for my sons wedding as she is ready .... its at the end of November. I just dont know what to do, please any advice greatly received.
