Hi. I am a 23 year old Masters student in Chicago. My Grandmother got diagnosed a little over 6 months ago with Alzheimers Disease. It has been a time of emotional ups and downs. The hardest thing for me to deal with is when my Grandmother starts accusing her children (my mom in specific) of stealing from her. She will often slip into these crying or yelling sessions because she wonders how her children could do this to her? Is it "normal" for people with Alzheimers Disease to have dillusions about what is happening to them? Any information would be much appreciated.
