Miss M was 85 years of age and lived alone. She was diagnosed with Lewy ody dementia following a series of investigations prompted by memory loss nd disorientation accompanied by visual hallucinations of fish in her coal unker. This led to her emptying the coal bunker and putting the coal in the sitting room. She also ‘saw’ children dancing in her garden. These episodes ere not constant but were a very real experience.
