Hi everyone. I have been quiet for a while, there's been no change with my mother and no progress on the respite care / housing front, but I would like to ask if anyone out there has experienced something similar. Mum (82) was diagnosed with AD around five years ago, but had been having symptoms for a year or so. About eight weeks ago I noticed that she has started thinking out loud (I wouldn't really call it talking to herself) and in a much more articulate way than previously. Some of her thoughts are however particularly disturbed / disturbing and very anti my Dad who is her carer (and himself 86). The only really good thing is that my Dad is pretty deaf and can't really understand what she's saying. Is this just a phase? Is it best to ignore what she's saying? As I mentioned, she really does seem to be thinking out loud.
