I'm hoping that someone reading this post will have an idea as to how my family handles the problem that is facing us at the moment. Mum is talking a lot about a baby that she says is hers but that someone else has. I have a brother and sister much older than me and we are all (including my dad) at a loss as to what to do. She gets upset that no one believes her but the details of what she is saying are so random and jumbled. My nan was also diagnosed with Alzheimers recently and her gp said that in these circumstances it's best to change the subject. That's a really difficult thing to do if mum doesn't want to! I'm not if I should take this story seriously, maybe it's something that she's seen on the news and it's become real to her, or is she trying to tell us something that she feels we ought to know. Should I let the conversation continue and risk her becoming upset or carry on changing the subject?? Any ideas?
