My dear sweet mom started just this past July having delusions, hallucinations and outbursts. It started just maybe 1 then another a month later ubril she was up all night talking arguing to dead people. She is now inAL memory care for respite (foe me) because we are now going to sell our house and I'm still suffering from burnout
The AL called me today and I guess she had another outburst (they put her on Seroquel when this started). And threw her walker. They had a geriatric psych doctor coming in and wanted my permission to have her evaluated and to check her meds. I said "absolutely" - I would love this to stop hoping maybe some meds could be causing it. (wishful thinking)
My question is what is the evaluation like and how can they tell or find out what is wrong with her. I don't want to sound stupid, but I googled it and really didn't understand what will go on. Blood tests? She has had them. I'm just so hoping they can fix her back.
