Mom has vascular dementia (stage unknown due to newly diagnosed) and advanced glaucoma. For the last few days mom has been phantom eating and/or eating. Sometimes she is in her hallucinations and other times she is quiet while performing the motions of bringing things to her lips. She already grabs and talks at imaginary things and people. She also talks about dying a lot and speaking to her dead mother.
Has anyone experienced this and at what stage did you typically see this decline in your loved one's dementia?
