Hi Ivalee, Did you ever think of having a family member came and stay with her for a weekend? That way she will still be in her own enviroment. As for her driving , she needs to stop before she kills someone or herself. My state has Hospice where we can take our elder for a little while. I haven't tried it because mom is a Dr Jeckle/Mr. Hyde so I won't expose anyone to that. I hope I helped in a way. Barb
