    dementia patient doesn't understand reflections.

    My patient will look at her reflection and ask who it is. We tell her it is her and she freaks out and says "that's not me" and "someone is watching me" is this a common occurrence?

    I need to do something I'm just not sure how to tell him. He doesn't ttake very good care of her. He is rarely home and she is left alone. She is on no meds. I don't even know if that would help. But he weight is dropping fast and I'm worried. She's probably about 80 pounds now.
