FIL has late stage dementia. He talks all day and half the night. Most of what he says doesn't make sense, or else is twisted. Like yesterday he was saying that he built our house. Which of course he didn't. But he was going on and on about it. I just kept nodding but it is driving me crazy. Any ideas on what to do? I haven't been turning on the tv lately because if he sees something there he goes on a fantasy trip about it for days afterwards. For instance, a dune buggy race became that he wanted to race the dogs, and he won $3 million and had a fit when I didn't go pick up his winnings in time.
Dr. hasn't been very helpful, but referred FIL to a neurologist. Not sure about that.
Any suggestions on how to help? He has not been eating partly because he won't stop talking. MIL is deaf and can't hear him, so just tunes him out.
Thanks for listening
