My MIL who has mid-stage Alzheimer's recently moved in with us and I'm wondering if she can be left alone for short periods of time?
She hasn't shown any signs of wandering during the day, but there have been a few incidents at night (couldn't find her way back to bed after going to the bathroom ... though her bathroom is in the bedroom ... she ended up wandering the house opening doors until she woke us up... we are working on alarming her door so we know when she is wandering at night). I am wondering if it is safe to leave her at home for a few hours at a time while I run errands, etc. I can usually take her with me but sometimes she doesn't want to go and gets mad when I say she has to.... her response has been "Well what could I possibly do?!" .... my response to that "We don't know, that's the problem".
