My mom is getting into things that are becoming a safety hazard to her. How can I keep my mom safe in her own assisted living room?
She's been in the same AL for Memory Care for 6 yrs. Same room. The last 3 mos she's getting things out (this month it's books) and stacking it up, as if she's moving. By the time I get there (or staff) and put it away, she doesn't remember why it's out. This would be OK but for the fact that she stacks it on the floor - becoming a safety hazard. Should I take out all the books but one small case? (she has 3, and is a voracious reader) Also has been taking the photos out of scrapbooks we made her to remind of family members, cutting up pix, tearing a page out of a book, etc.
