Recently an old friend visited my mom for the first time in the AL. She brought along another person who was new to mom. A stranger. While there, mom gave this person her private papers and in turn this person gave legal, medical, and other advice. The person was not a medical or legal person. The advice itself wasn't problematic, but it triggered difficult behavior and mood swings. Following the visit, mom made 18 calls to one agency in one afternoon, and continued making calls for days. She said she was on the phone for hours and skipped events and meals. How would you deal with this? I called the friend and tried to explain how easy it was to trigger paranoia but I'm not sure they understood.
