Hello all you dear caregivers!
Mom - 92
Lives with me and hubby
Original delusion was that hubby was shining lights on her in the night.
That one has stopped.
Now, she says he's blowing cold air on her. Says he put together a machine that he can flip on and off to do this.
Now we hear this all day long. Not just at night, like when she thought there were lights on her.
It's 60 degrees out, the heat is set to 70. She could have 4 blankets and a coat on. But her delusion tells her she has air on her and she is freezing.
I'm at my wits end because nothing I say or do helps her comfort level.
We have an electric heater near her. I make hot water bottles. I bought an electric blanket. NOTHING stops this delusion.
I really need advice or suggestions.
