My FIL lives with us and has dementia. He does not wander but is very restless in the home, he refuses to go for outings. His latest thing is calling old friends on his cell phone asking them to come pick him up and take him home (he's lived in the same home for 20 plus years). Obviously, to old friends who haven't seen him in a while it is very distressing to hear this which leads to frantic phone calls to my husband and I to make sure he is ok. He also calls 411 to help him fix his TV (he removed the cords and can't find them). He also calls information to help fix the phone line (the phone line is fine). There has even been a few times he wanted to call 911 because "he was being held against his will." So I'm just wondering if it might be better to disconnect his cell phone altogether. I don't want him to feel we are isolating him and I wouldn't care if he actually kept the phone. And for those that worry he might need it for emergencies I doubt he would have the sense to call 911 if something happened. He is NEVER alone during the week, sometimes alone for an hour or so on the weekends (never at night). I would really appreciate some advice from people who have gone through this dilemma.
