What To Do About Hallucinations

What To Do About Hallucinations


Four suggestions to help you, when your loved one is hallucinating:

1. Go along with it: Trying to prove it’s not true will upset and anger your loved one.

2. Try to distract your mom or spouse: Acknowledge that they are upset; then offer tea, music, a snuggle with a pet.

3. Do detective work: Ask gentle questions; maybe a bedspread pattern looks alive or shadows look like people.

4. Remove the trigger: Change the bedspread to something that is monotone. Special lighting can help minimize shadows.
