Hello,
My grandma is sick and she says that she is dead all the time. Everyone has talked to her but she continues saying that she is dead. She seems to be mentally affected, what must be done please? Is there anything that may be done to help her please?
Thanks in advance.

Hi,
This is a clear case of cotard's syndrome which makes the patient believe that she is dead. I believe that it is being caused due to the fact that she is growing older. Have you taken her to a psychologist please?

Hello
It sounds as if your grandmother is depressed and feeling lost and alone. Get her to your GP and commence on antidepressent medication. Also gain the support of her family and friends to get her out and about. Good luck
