Hi. Mum is 88 & has Congestive Heart failure.
She had a bladder infection 6 months ago, with delirium & never returned to her normal self.
She displays odd behaviour, trying to
use any chair or surface as a commode, eating relentlessly, trying to eat unedible items ( dog hair, my arm, her clothes) shows no emotions or anxieties. Prior to this she suffered depression & severe anxiety disorder. She is now super calm & relaxed but very confused. Shes now unable to dress herself & has no interest in personal hygiene.
The hospital doctors did some Dementia screening consisting of various questions. They said she answered them correctly & therefore say they cant diagnose Dementia.
I would very much like to hear from anyone that can offer their thoughts on this.
