I know I need to put her in a nursing home because it has become too much to handle and need to place her full time but what if you are afraid she will claim to the facility you abused her, took her money and the nursing home might turn you in to authorities because she sounds convincing at times and believable if you don’t know her for awhile. Already went through an episode earlier in her care where she wandered to neighbor down the street and told them she was being detained, taken from her home in another state and her money was taken and did not want to go back to our house. That prompted the neighbor who did not know her to call the police which triggered an investigation and state social workers to come and interrogate the family including her individually then having to prove she had Alzheimer’s. Just a nightmare. Someone who doesn’t know her could be fooled by her in the short time.
What to do to be protected when people today jump to conclusions fast to turn you in and open a “can of worms.” I don’t know.
