    Hi there and thanks for posting,


    It must be extremely hard for you to witness your mother go through this. My thoughts are with you. *hugs*


    Here is information about hallucinations as it relates to Parkinson's on WebMD. I think that you will find it very useful.

    Description of the stages of Parkinson's Disease: http://www.webmd.com/parkinsons-disease/guide/parkinsons-stages


    Parkinson's Disease & Mental Health: http://www.webmd.com/parkinsons-disease/guide/depression-disturbances (**It says here that hallucinations delusions, and paranoia are possible complications of Parkinson's Disease**)


    In addition, here is information about hallucinations from the National Parkinson's Foundation: http://www.parkinson.org/understanding-parkinsons/non-motor-symptoms/Psychosis


    Considering these resources, it does seem that hallucinations/delusions/paranoia are complications that many people with Parkinson's Disease experience.


    I hope this helps!
