Thanks y'all, here's the background/questions. My mom's dementia is undiagnosed. We originally hired caregivers for Dad, and then we all began to notice mom's decline. Her PA, (the only doc she'll see in their very small town) did a basic memory test in August and she failed tremendously. At that time we were trying to get help from him in stating NO MORE DRIVING, due to the # of "accidents" which she had. She still perseverates on the driving, keys are hidden but every time they go anywhere it's a problem. Some days she acquiesces somewhat amiably, but others is very vocal in her anger. She is on Xanax, and is given one on "driving days" as soon as she awakens. We have considered moving the car to another place on the property, but she is bothered when she can't see it. Also, considered selling it, but we would like the caregivers to have a car for transport that is comfortable for mom and dad and doesn't require them using personal vehicles for family business. The scenario of why she can't drive changes in her head, and she has visited all public officials in this little town to plead her case. They are all old friends of the family, and kindly tell her to accept being driven, and NO she can't drive herself unless she wants to end up in the pokey! She will laugh and accept it, but 20 minutes later at home, forgets she has spoken to anyone and it all starts over again.
Hope this is not too long, I could go on and on.
Thank you to anyone who has input. God bless,
