My mom has alzheimer's and still lives at home. My son, his wife and 2 small kids live downstairs and care for her. Today she got agitated and and left the house. Fortunately my daughter in law drove down the street and saw her. Mom was very mad and insisted they walk up and down the road.
Anyway, this is progressing so fast that something needs to be done now. I was wondering if anyone can advise me on safety locks for the outside doors? I know it sounds so barbaric but I just want a way to keep her safe so she doesn't go out.
I'm also thinking we need someone to come in a give them a break, but where do I start? She has Group Health Ins. maybe I should call her Dr. and see.
Thank you for any advice or encouragement you can give
