My Mother-in-law has been diagnosed with mixed/vascular dementia which she has not accepted and will not discuss any aspect of it and got really angry when the subject of power of attorney was mentioned. We do not know whether she is simply in denial or this denial is part of her dementia? Recently she has mentioned getting phone calls and this morning she called us at 05.30.am to ask if we had been calling her as her phone had been ringing since 3.00.am when my wife went to her house she checked the call records and the last call had been from us the previous afternoon so there had been no calls since. We just don't know if she is dreaming or imagining the phone is ringing? does anybody else have any similar experience of this? There is a lot more for me to discuss with regards to her condition but will leave for another post. Many Thanks for any comments, already I have found it good to read others stories.
