i have a question....i have a friend whose mother is acting started when his brother had gotten into trouble with drugs and was sent to prison...his mother is now even during the day thinking that some of his drug dealers are out to kill her...she is hearing things....and says they have called and said they were on their way....she says they are outside the door....she has even hid in the closet thinking that "they" are there....this happens during the day as well as the night...she has called 911 so much that they will not even come out night she is awakened with hearing them in the house...she does this whether she is home with someone staying with her or whether she is at someones house...she says that now "they" are out to get the rest of the family....could this be signs of sundowners syndrome?

HI there sounds to me like this friend needs to have Mom assessed and see what is going on with her ......
I am not really sure about the sundownders I would think more of a Paranoia thing going on I really suggest she be assessed as soon as possible
