Hello! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.

I understand you are confused about your Mother. Hallucinations are perceptual disturbances of the senses with stimuli that are not actually there, such as seeing something that is not there or hearing a sound that is not there. Hallucination disorders are indeed common in the elderly> 60 years. Treatment for hallucinations that occur in the elderly is not arbitrary and more difficult than in younger people. Hallucinations can also be quite a problem in parents. Therefore, you need the help of a mental health specialist in treating your mother. The doctor will examine your mother and provide the appropriate therapy. With proper treatment, it is hoped that not only will the hallucinations disappear, but the quality of your mother's life can also improve, so that she can be happier living her old age.

At home, try to be more patient with your mother. You can best explain that something your mother saw is not there. If your mother continues to insist that what she saw is true, there is no need to scold or insist that the little animal is not there. You can ask your mother to tell you about the animal she saw, for example about its shape and color. Hopefully you will be a good listener to your mother so that she can recover well.

This is information from me. I hope this helps.
