Hearing music at night, may be from TV

My husband s aunt (90 years old) is experiencing hearing music at night and has said someone was in her duplex for about 20 minutes. She thinks the music is from the TV but we have pretty much eliminated that idea, but she still thinks that is where it is coming from. We are pretty sure no one has been in her duplex. Help

Psychiatrist 's  Response
The information provided is very much limited. Is this was just one incident or she persistently complain about it. Secondly does she hear these voices frequently or just this one time. If these are persistent problem and she is not getting convinced by repeated explanation by you guys than , she may be suffering from psychosis. At this age it may be secondary to some neurological cause so she need a neurological assessment and also psychiatric intervention.
Get her to doctors ASAP as it may progress also which can be difficult to manage.
Take care

General & Family Physician Dr. Ramesh M.Vachharajani's  Response
Hi, Thanks for query.
It seems that your aunt might be having hallucination and illusion due to less circulation of blood in the brain called cerebro basillar insufficiency or some atrophy changes in the brain due to age.
This common at this age.
Ok and bye.
