Delirium often clears in a few days or weeks. Some people may not respond to treatment for many weeks. Others may never go back to the way they were. The sooner the cause can be found and treated, the better the chance of recovery.
You may see memory or thinking problems that don't go away. Everyone is different. Please talk with your healthcare provider if you have questions or concerns.
If you have questions about delirium or dementia call Health Link at 811. You can talk to a registered nurse and ask about the Dementia Advice Line.
