My 93-year old mom's macular degeneration has progressed to the point where she can barely see. She also has early-to-mid stage dementia. She has just moved into a long term care facility and, due to the fact that the stress of the move has caused a setback, she is also extremely unfamiliar with the facility and is having difficulty navigating. On the 2nd day of her residency, she was going for a walk down a long hallway and when she reached the lobby at the end of the hallway, she accidentally started going through the front door. I know her very well and I am quite certain that because of her severe visual impairment she could not see that it was an exit door. Unfortunately though, the staff believe she was exit-seeking and, as a result, the LTC has attached on her a device that will sound an alarm if she does this again. I think I am okay with that but sadly, she also accidentally walked into another resident's room - believing it to be her room. And now the staff think she is bothering people and invading their privacy. Is there anything we can do to prevent this from happening again? Is there something we can do or buy that will help my mom find her room more easily? I don't want her to end up being seen as a troublemaker and, as a result, experience the consequences of being transferred to the "secured unit" where she will be among those whose dementia is more advanced. I am quite sure that would set her back even more and there would be no hope of her recovering from this current setback due to the stress of the move. The staff are also not doing anything with my mom! They are not taking her for walks or engaging her in any activities. If I did not go and visit with her every day - taking her for walks, talking with her, and reading to her etc - she would likely spend most of her time in her room and would receive little cognitive stimulation! This whole situation is heartbreaking and terribly frustrating.
