Customer Question

My dad is 92 and is in a constant state of hallucination. Sometimes he is aware he is hallucinating other times not. He does not have demenccia it appears to be electriacl currents flying around his brain. he relates stories as if in the past and gives lectures etc (he was a psychiatrist) he constantly is fiddling with his hands and picking up imaginary things. He has gone from sleeping 18 hours a day to never sleeping, only hallucinating, it's exhausting for him and us! what is wrong?
