In brief: Need to see doctor.

Encourage your relative to see his or her doctor for a possible referral to a mental health specialist.
Sometimes medical conditions like dementia or delirium may cause hallucinations. Some drugs or psychiatric conditions may also cause them. It is important for the person to be evaluated soon.
