I have a senior relative who is a Holocaust victim, who sees people coming in and out of her home, without having opened or closed doors and windows (hallucinating). She refuses to seek help and refuses to take any additional medication. She insists that her relatives don't care enough about her to rid her of her unwanted guests. What is there to do?

If your loved one is having hallucinations she needs to be in a protective environment. She should also see the Dr. so the Dr. can prescribe medication for her.

Both of my parents had dementia when they passed away and years before so even though our situations may not be the same I can tell you what we did and actually what we were forced to do before adult protective services stepped in.

I am new to this forum, I have an aunt who is a Holocaust/auschwitz survivor. she has had a very sad life. my cousin died at 39 of breast cancer. my aunt never gor over it. she has had bypass
surgery among other ailments. last year she began to show signs of confusion. since we don't live near each other, I see her only a few times a year. we do speak by phone often. a few months ago she began to complain people in her bedroom and many other symptoms. she has a close friend down the hall who is truly a saint. she has been taking care of her. lately things have gotten out of hand, in that she began to become angry and aggressive. she was hospitalized at North Shore, but, was sent home with no diagnosis. We are very concerned about her and have no idea how to help her. I would appreciate any help I can find. please e-mail me wityh any info. or advice.
