Hallucinations and delusions are signs of Alzheimer’s illness and other dementias. With hallucinations or delusions, individuals do not encounter symptoms, as they really are.

HallucinationDelusions are false beliefs. Even if you provide proof about something to the individual with dementia, the person will not change her perception. For example, an individual with dementia may have a delusion in which she believes someone else is residing in her home when she actually lives alone. Delusions can also be knowledgeable by means of paranoid beliefs, or blaming others for factors that have not occurred.

Hallucinations are wrong views of things or events relating to the feelings. They seem real to the person suffering from the disorder, but cannot be confirmed by anyone else. Hallucinations are a false perception that can result in either good or bad experiences.

Typical hallucinations include:

  • Feeling some of the physical emotions, which are an activity of inner organs.
  • Some of the hearing voices when nobody has spoken. These voices may be critical, complimentary, neutral, or may command someone to do something that may cause harm to themselves or to others.
  • Smelling a foul or pleasant odor.


The main causes of hallucinations are:

  • Delirium or dementia
  • Epilepsy that includes a part of the mind known as the temporary lobe.
  • Fever
  • Narcolepsy
