Watch him.: Make sure the neurologist follows the patient with imaging studies ( ct or mri). He/she may order medicines for hallucinations . Amnesia may improve by itself or stayed the same. There are drugs for hallucinations.
Just be supportive taking pt to appointments and reminding him what he has to do. Read about falling precautions . He might need institutionalization if difficult to handle.
