I am sure my mother in Law has Alzheimer's as I recognize the stages as I have been through some of this before with my mothers husband the problem is I am not sure how to get her diagnosed. She is here at my house for a week to give one of my husbands sisters a break but she keeps wanting to go home and she tries to wander and walk away but her home is 250 miles away. She is very forgetful to the point where she is nervous and panicky I talk with her and we talk about her children and she sometimes calms down but there are times she looks at me and says I have no Idea who these people are you are talking about.
My daughter is 9 and there are times she asks who is this or who's child is this it scares me. Now my mother in law has always been a little flighty but this is different. I also think that the person she has moved into her house is stealing from her and is mentally abusive to her but none of her children are willing to make him leave. He is a creepy guy and is only 47 and she is 70 almost 71. I am afraid to let her go back to her home I don't know what to do.
My husband agrees with me but without a POA or a Guardianship is there anything we can do to help her and get this creepy man out of her house? and help her realize she cant live there anymore and get her the help I know she needs.
