... Many do this. My Mom did as well. Mostly it was talk of what she had to do or where she wanted to go or be, usually home, somewhere different than where she was or what she was doing. Then she was just jabbering incoherent statements. The desire to express was there but the words were not there. Basically, I, for the most part, just let her jabber. It is a harmless... (2 replies)
... My husband does. He used to say the same things like "I can't", "I have to go", etc...Now he doesn't really talk but, he still says those things. My husband sees and hears a lot of imaginary things due to hallucinations and delusions. He was also given Seroquel to calm the anxiety on top of the Namenda. Now Haldol has been added because the Seroquel doesn't seem to... (2 replies)
... Good for you for taking your son to see his grandmother and good for him for wanting to go! Yes, there are still people who can not "deal" with the fact that their loved one has dementia. I find this sad for both parties. I wonder if Mom had Cancer, would the X go see her then? It doesn't matter if grandmother knows you or not. What is important is that you know her and...

... I am taking my son to see his grandmother with dementia. I don't know what to say or expect. It is my ex husbands mother and he refuses to go see her. My son wants to see her. He hasn't seen her in a long time. His cousin texted me to let me know they put her on hospice care and this is really tough on him. I've never had to deal with this but I want my son to see her. We are... (2 replies)

... I was wondering if anyone has the situation where their loved one continually talks......I can't, I can't, I can't, I have to go, I have to go, I have to go....and other times nonsense that doesn't make any sense. This started in March 2014 - like a switch was flipped, Sunday was "fine" - Monday was out of control. Since then she has been on Risperdone, then off that and... (2 replies)
Hallucinations
Jun 28, 2014
... A doctor can determine if a patient has dementia. Dementia is a symptom marked by cognitive decline. But it is difficult to tell which type of dementia because there is no test for Vascular Dementia, Alzheimer's, or other type of dementia.

As I said many months ago, it is not always a miracle but can improve some of the the symptoms. ... (125 replies)

She seems to get lost in the middle of a sentence and forgets things, and forget anything that has to do with... (4 replies)

... Then he is getting good care. That is a typical but difficult stage between ambulatory and non ambulatory for many with dementia.
