She couldn't find her friend's house that she had been to on a regular basis. For the past two years, we allow Mom to only drive within a 10 mile radius.
Mom was to pick up her friend for a day outing. She drove to the nearby town (population 2000), a mere 8 miles away, and kept driving around the block and back and forth but couldn't find her friend's house so she just came home.
Mom has admitted she doesn't like to drive anymore, but she wants to keep her independence. Do we need to be concerned that she became confuse in a usually familiar area?
