MIL with "dementia" is seeing cobwebs everywhere and spends hours trying to wipe them down. She also sees bugs on the carpet and steps on them then picks them up and throws them out. Problem is there is NOTHING there. When she stomps the bugs I can barely contain my laughter. She is very good natured about it all, I just don't know how to address this. Thoughts?
An ischemic stroke eventually resulted. Based on my experience I would schedule a consult with her neurologist consult who will likely schedule with an MRI CT scan, to obtain specifc answers, since Dementia is a generalized term, for memory issues.
The good news however, since starting the antibiotic she hasn't killed a "bug" or knocked down a "cobweb." So I think that problem is solved for now.
Thanks again for taking the time to share your thoughts. Much appreciated.
