If this is new, her doctor may be able to help with meds adjustments or meds that help with hallucinations. Please get her some help if you can; the hallucinations are very real to them.

Spainter, what your Grandmother is doing is part of having dementia. To learn more about dementia scroll down to the bottom of this page to the blue area. Now click on ALZHEIMER'S CARE where you will find a lot of articles on Alzheimer's and Dementia.

Another thing, maybe your Grandmother has an Urinary Tract Infection, that can cause her to be agitated. Have her primary doctor to a test for UTI, it's pretty simple test.
