Pay attention to the symptoms of elderly elderly paranoia
Father Yang came to Xiamen’s daughter’s home to take a summer vacation from his hometown.
On the weekend, daughter Xiao Yang took him to Jimei Garden to play, but when he arrived at Gion, Yang’s father began to lose his temper, not to mention that Chen Jiageng’s tomb that Xiao Yang took him to see was fake.
No matter how Xiao Yang explained, he just didn’t believe it.
Fearing that the thief had three locks on the door, Xiao Yang thought that he was not feeling right. In fact, his father was “a bit strange” more than a decade ago.
Xiao Yang remembered that his father used to tell her often that the person upstairs was jealous of him.
Because he was always afraid of thieves entering the house to steal things, his father added three locks to the door and a slender door.
When I see a doctor, my father only recognizes a doctor because I feel that other doctors can’t cure his illness.
A few days ago, Xiao Yang brought Yang to visit Zhongshan Hospital.
Xiao Yang told Professor Chen Zhiqing of the Geriatrics Department of Zhongshan Hospital. Her father is over 80 years old. He usually takes care of himself and insists on cooking and washing clothes. He has been working up the mountain in the early morning for decades.
For some of the abnormal behaviors of my father in recent years, everyone thought that his father was old and confused, and he was demented.
The elderly suffer from old-age paranoia. Professor Chen Zhiqing told Xiao Yang that her father was not suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, but was an old-age paranoia.
”The biggest difference between the two is that people with Alzheimer’s disease often don’t know how to go home after going out, but older people with paranoia do not.
Chen Zhiqing said that because most people lack understanding of old-age paranoia, the rate of old-age paranoia is low, and patients cannot get timely treatment.
According to reports, old-age paranoia is a common mental disorder in the elderly, more common in the elderly over 65 years old, especially women.
“Some patients always feel that others are going to harm themselves.
One person around him, he felt that he was greatly humiliated and would immediately counterattack.
Some patients will unreasonably suspect that their spouse is unfaithful.
Chen Zhiqing said that because patients often live on their own, they are dressed neatly, and some can still go to work as usual. People around them often feel that patients are only suspicious and sensitive.
Usually, elderly people with old paranoia should be treated early.
