I am finding this site useful, and realising that others have worse problems than I. At present my wife has full mobility and the really bad days are when she decides that her problems will only be solved by going home to her long dead parents. This means walking with her (or following by car like a stalker) till something clicks in her head and she becomes persuadable. All the advice is "Don't try physical restraint". So I don't. In more normal moods she mentions her parents but can be diverted by answers like "Your Daddy has been recalled to India." (Where he served and she was born.) But in wandering mode that distraction fails. She also looks different and regards me as an impediment to her search, that must be got rid of. If anybody has a similar story it might give me clues. It seems that she has to take things with her. Today it was three framed photographs and three pairs of tights in a plastic bag.
