One of the biggest problems I'm having with my Alzheimers mom right now is that I've caught her several times (at early or late hours) trying to leave the house. She always says that she "needs go go home"- and it's hard to reason with her. I've found that distraction is working pretty well- but I need suggestions on how I can prevent her from opening the door to begin with. I have an alarm on all doors and a baby monitor near by (with the other end in my bedroom). The problem is that it takes me a minute to wake up and realize what is happening. Plus lately I've been so tired that I'm afraid I just won't hear it! Has anyone had any experience with this?? Any suggestions you can offer? Thanks in advance!!
