Has anyone had experience of this? My aunt has had delirium for the last 10 weeks after being admitted to hospital with a UTI. She is 75. Before the delirium she was having tests for dementia, but was never formally diagnosed as the brain scans were inconclusive. She has been discharged from hospital and is now in a care home in a section for dementia patients. The delirium hasn't improved - she recognises visitors, but has visual and aural hallucinations, paranoia and is usually incoherent. She has no idea that she is in a care home. She also had a fall in hospital and is now unable to walk. Basically she needs 24 hour care. It's as though she went from having mild to advanced dementia overnight. Has anyone else seen anything like this? Is it delirium or dementia or a combination of the two? Nobody seems to have an answer, just that she 'might' recover. Thanks for reading if you got this far!
