I just tried to post, but it didn't seem to work! I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. I'm 24 my grandma has dementia, suspected Alzheimer's. We are having real trouble, as every so often she has episodes where she gets paraniod and deluded. At these times she claims not to live where she does, and leaves. This usually means she's walking the streets alone, sometimes at night. We've been lucky so far, but it's only a matter of time before she is mugged, hit by a car or has a bad fall. Her GP and social services say that they can't do anythign (e.g. full medical examination, check her current medication etc) until she asks for help, but, as she is paranoid and deluded, she will never do that! Is anyone else in this situation? What can be done?
