Can hypnosis reduce dementia behaviors?
Mother (95) in an ALF, but wants to return to home & people from 1930's. Thinks her mom & dad are still alive (both passed decades ago), seldom asks about husband of 60 years (married in 1941, he passed in 2006). Packs up everything nearly every day getting ready, and sits there waiting, for someone to take her back home. (that house has been demolished, years ago). She thinks "home" is only a few miles away, when it is 1700+ miles back to Nebraska from FL. Keeps asking (harrassing) "when is someone going to take me home?" Then is upset when we say later or not today.
Would Hypnosis help reduce or stop this? But then she may not even remember the hypnosis.
I see mention on www about a Dr in UK?, but no stats or proof of success probability. Neurologist said it probably would not work. How do you find a hypnotist? I have tried a little, and didn't find any real help. .
