Do you find that the people with dementia have ups and downs. My MIL was doing really well with Numenden. She was not having halucinations anymore and seemed to be pretty coherent. Yesterday she called and asked her son if he had seen his father recently. His father has been dead for 5 years. If he sees his father please send him home because she hasn't seen him in a while and misses him. Then today she calls saying that someone must have broke into her apartment and cut her arm. She locked and chained all the doors and they still got in. The chains were off. Her food cabinet was open but nothing was missing. I tried to explain to her that she must have been sleep walking but she wouldn't hear of any of that. So do dementia people have times when they go backwards for no apearant reason? And will she come back to where she was when she was doing pretty good on this med? What have your experiences been?
