Re: new to the board....
My father (vascular dementia) had frequent delusions. It was a symptom of his dementia. There nothing more that could be done to alleviate the delusions. Delusions are real to those experiencing them. Beyond that the ability to think, reason, remember, and process has been damaged. I didn't try to convince my Dad that what he believed was unreal... that he was wrong? If I did it only angered him. In a disease with no cure or treatment, you strive for contentment. Yes, I did go along with Dad's delusions. Yes, let the doctor's know about all symptoms.
