Hi all,,,, again. Question if I may. My sister went to see mum today and it was awful apparently. Mum was really aggressive and just kept saying to my sister "go away, nobody wants me" and was really nasty. She also thought everyone in the hospital was relatives of a friend of hers who died in that hospital last year. Mum has never been nasty or aggressive so it was a bit of a shock. She has been hard work this week, she has been very frustrated, tearful and upset but this was a first really. Just really confusing considering only 5 weeks ago whilst at home yes there were bad memory issues and poor thought processing but she was still mum and you could have a decent conversation. Just wondering if this is still the Delirium hitting hard combined with the dementia or is it the dementia progressing really quickly? She has a memory of about 30 seconds and just doesn't make sense at all and I thought dementia was slow progressing?! I know delirium can take a long time to recover, if at all, but these changes just seem to be happening so quickly. Thoughts appreciated.
