what is recommended when the patient is originating responses to visual and/or auditory halucinations?

If the person has Alzheimer's there may be medication they can take to help calm them down but hallucinations aren't "typical" of AZ manifestation. It can happen but usually not until the middle to end stage. If the Alzheimer's sufferer is on pain medication, this can increase hallucinations. However, the best thing would be to discuss this with their doctor to find something that may help.

Hi,

My father was an Alzheimer's patient.Usually in late evenings, he used to get terrified visualizing that somebody is trying to harm/hit him.He used to look at the door and start shouting, sometimes uncontrollable.we noticed that this mostly happened if he woke up late in evening after a post lunch nap.So, we used to schedule his day so that he doesn't sleep till evening, or we used to keep him away from the front door of the house, used to keep him engaged elsewhere.Sometimes, it worked, sometimes didn't. I remember such incident that happened when I was around, I had to hold my father tightly but lovingly, was telling him constantly and assuring that I am with you, I am your daughter and no one can harm you.Then we cajoled him to come inside, made him lie down, hold his hand and I asked my mom to bring some new topic or sing any old songs that he liked.Then I asked him if he remembers the line, and he could sing most of the lines.Soon he was better.
Later on, when he caught up Parkinson's, his hallucinations were severe and of different nature.Those could only be moderated with help of medicine.Those are painful, and those not let my father sleep even.It was in later stages of PD.I wish your loved one doesn't have to go through it.

1. call doctor
2. Let him have his hallicuation. do not approach, they can and will get violent, including the small skinny fragile looking ones (i got physical evidence on me too lol)
3. Not sleeping/days and nights mixed up = sun downers
4. have a evaluation done, it seems a med adjustment needs to happen (yea red im actually saying it)
5. do not hesitate to talk to us, especially red or me (hehehe love ya red)
