My wife is now constantly talking no stop to someone seems to be talking to children related to when she was a nursery nurse in a school “ok come on then you have got to go now. Bye now see you soon”
my wife becomes agitated but not distressed .The memory nurse has asked if my wife is having hallucinations but I am not sure as she is unable to talk with any coherense.

@Kenbob my wife is the same, talking none stop, I have just learnt to live with it.
It might be wise to check for a UTI as this can often lead to such situations.

It's important that any sudden changes in behaviour are properly investigated, as there may be underlying health issues, so it's good that the mental health team are involved. I'd also suggest a thorough check over by the GP as she may have an infection.

My OH has started muttering under his breath. He seems to be verbalising his thoughts.
If there is no underlying health problem, might that be what your wife is doing - remembering what she used to do and verbalising it?

Oh my partner does this all the time, especially when I'm in a different room or upstairs, he does a lot of complaining and if he can't see me he gets anxious and even shouts, there's often a lot of negative stuff and some swearing. He always denies he's talking though, doesn't seem to realise he's doing it. Sometimes drives me mad but I try to tune it out now unless he sounds anxious then I go to reassure him that I'm there.

Thank you my wife has had a blood test and hopefully any infection will show up.
i am unable to get a urine sample as she only urinates during the night in bed

Hi, not quite non stop, but my wife has LBD and we have this chatting, not exactly to herself but people she imagines are around. She sort of gets a topic in her mind and will pursue it for a few days.
I have also seen her conduct detailed calls on the phone to imaginary people.

My oh has talked to herself for quite a while but recently has started to whisper rather than talk and in addition has started making strange sounds, I have seen this progression in other victims at her day care centre.

That’s exactly like my husband. He seems to hear their voices. He can talk for hours and hours and I think must get exhausted. It’s particularly prevalent in the evening and at night, but can be during the day. He seems to get stuck on a loop saying the same thing over and over, although it’s more than one phrase it’s a sort of story.
