My MIL is 92 years old and lives alone. She was diagnosed with dementia and is starting to get progressively worse. Her children have just gotten an aide in the home three days a week, four hours a day to help out. However, my mother-in-law does not acknowledge that there is anything wrong and continues to do things that she did when she was young, including climbing up stepladders while she is alone. We have started moving things in the kitchen cabinets down to lower shelves so she won't have to climb. BUT ... She climbs on the ladder to clean the top of her Windows, adjust shades, etc. any suggestions on how to get her to stop,doing this? I suggested just taking the step ladder out of the house but my husband feels that she will just then use a chair. I am so afraid she will fall, break a hip ( or worse) and then end up in a home. Thanks for any and all suggestions!
