Paranoia and Accusations

Physical changes in the person's brain could result in the parts of their brain that should regulate their behaviour deteriorating or no longer functioning.

The person may be hallucinating as part of their dementia symptoms - this may be particularly noticeable around evenings and night times. If the person has Lewy Body dementia, this is especially common.
