Capgras delusion: How do I respond to my mother who continues to believe that she is in a duplicate house and wants to go home?
She keeps asking me how she is going to get home 3-4 times per day. So far I have been able to divert the attention and be understanding but I am running out of ideas. She has not been officially diagnosed with capgras delusion but has every symptom and our family has spoken with a clinical psychologist. I have a house of my own and had to quit my job to take care of her. She has no recollection of that event and thinks she is at my house
that looks just like hers....which it doesn't of course.
