Hi, My mum has had Alzheimer’s for almost 15 years. She is now mostly calm and almost childlike, unable to retain any thoughts for more than a few seconds. But something interesting and quite funny has started recently and I wonder if anyone else has seen this or has any pertinent advice about it: Mum, who is English, spoke very average school-girl French and only occasionally in her 86 years. Recently, however, she has become stuck in a loop where she speaks French almost 100% of the time. It’s more like ‘franglais’ because she doesn’t have the full vocabulary, but it is persistent, instinctive and pretty much unstoppable! At first it was funny, amazing and quite sweet and it still is, although it means we get very little of the previously quite rewarding conversations we used to have with her. It’s almost as if she’s stuck in a fantasy world in which she is a French woman. Has anyone - carer or specialist - come across this before? It’s a minor inconvenience and definitely one we can live with, but we’re all curious about it. So, any thoughts would be very welcome. Merci!
