Mum was diagnosed with AD a couple of years ago - she is now 81 and is wandering more and more and is getting lost and distressed. She is getting exhausted because she takes loads of things with her on her rambles! Thinking about looking for a nursing home but my sister is really opposed to this and says that they can't lock her in and she will wander anyway. I do appreciate that they can't lock someone up, but how do they keep tabs on people with AD if they are allowed to wander? I'm just so scared that she will get into a car with a stranger and get harmed.
