My mom is 92, in a NH and has aphasia from a stroke. Some days she's fairly fluent, other days, a word or phrase is all that comes out. So I visit today and she says "I want to talk to you" gesturing that we should go out of her room. So I take her to the parlor and she manages to get out "they've all turned against me ", something about "the girls", something about someone who works upstairs and finally, "something is different". She was rather upset telling me all this, but at the end she said "I feel so much better". She's clearly unbidden ed herself, but to her clueless daughter! Anyone have any good ideas?
My mom has vascular dementia and was somewhat paranoid right after the stroke, but has been fairly stable mentally and emotionally for the last year or so.
