My 83-year-old mother has serious problems. In the recent past, she has run out the front door in the middle of the night, trying to get away from me, because she said she didn’t recognize me. She would pound on a neighbors’ door late at night or early in the morning, and ask them to call the police. The police have actually come by our house before, to see what was going on. One of my mother’s old friends, lives around the corner with her adult grandson and his wife. In the past, him and his wife were very understanding. But as can be expected, they eventually got fed up.
The woman’s grandson, who is normally very nice, actually yelled at me, and told me that this situation had to stop. The police gave us a warning not to let this happen again. I have done my best to stop my mother from going to their house, and have been pretty much successful with that, since she started on her new meds, But she still has the desire to try and walk over there to make conversation. How do I get her to stop?
