Just wondering if anyone has any advice on how to emphasize the point of staying at home to someone with dementia? My husband's Grandma keeps leaving the house despite seeing on the TV the fact that she's breaking the rules and putting herself and others at risk.
I'm a nurse in respiratory and my husband's also a key worker so as much as we want to take her to live with us during the outbreak it's just not safe for her.
She currently lives alone with care x4 daily but we're getting so concerned with her leaving the house, she just can't understand how dangerous bit is.
Any advice welcome!

Hello and welcome @1ottieMill.

That's a tough one and I hope you get some advice.

I saw another thread this morning where someone had made up an official looking poster to use with a loved one in this situation. I'll try to find that and post a link if I do.
