At age 85 my wife suddenly started having hallucinations and blaming me of depriving her of money she dropped on the bedroom floor. Since then I took her to a neurologist who prescribed several blood tests and a cerebral echography. The diagnosis was multiple mini strokes in the cortex. She has been under medication to control loss of memory and loss of weight. There is no improvement after 8 months of treatment.
