Mom has dementia, what type we don't know even though she's had lots of testing. At first they thought vascular and now maybe Lewey Body which I know you can't test for definitively until death. Mom's hallucinations lately are so tragic in nature and involve seeing children accidentally getting hurt and in which she is responsible to help them. Now the doctors are mentioning her seeing a psychiatrist. Will psychiatry help if this is dementia related? I personally have always thought there was an underlying psychiatric problem. Interesting that her brother suffered from depression in his 40's (and she in her 30's) that involved him imagining he was responsible for tragic events that never happened. He had to see a psychiatrist. They together with their other siblings had a tragic childhood.
