Re: new to the board....

It must be very draining beyond comprehension to be a caregiver of someone with Alzheimer's or any type of dementia. With regard to hallucinations (and delusions - false beliefs), one is not supposed to go along with them which I'm sure that you don't. There is a great book for caregivers of those with AD or other types of dementia called 'the 36-hour day'. Please do talk to your mother's GP about her symptoms. You may want to also schedule an appointment with a neurologist, too. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your mom and everyone affected by your mother's illness.
