Hello! This is my first post. Mum was diagnosed about three years ago & is on Donepezil. I'm an only child & live just with mum. She has two sisters (with assorted children & grandchildren) but they both live on the coast & seem almost completely disinterested. I'm managing - much of the time she isn't too bad, although Christmas was a bit lonely. Just recently, as I believe is quite common, in the evenings (her sundowning is quite apparent) she is sure that I live alone in our flat, while she lives 'up the road'. She often says she should go home, despite having lived here for 20 years! I can lock the front door at night & have the key by my bed, so she's safe, but I worry about leaving her in the flat alone in case she decides to leave to go 'home'. I'm not working - resigned in May to look after her - but do like to go out with friends maybe once every couple of weeks for a few hours. I suspect it's incredibly dangerous & morally off to lock her in, but wondered how other people manage. A phone with a tracker seems useless as I know she wouldn't carry it...any advice would be much appreciated. I almost wish I could have her microchipped!
