we've gone through this stage and I have done what you are doing, what i did done eventually is let her get her coat and shoes on bag at her side and explained that its raining and cold outside and that it would be better to go in the morning. saying please stay with me and we'll have a cuppa hey? I think it was more about getting the cloths on - mum sat in her fur jacket with shoes on in bed one night thinking she was on the bus going home!! saying quick get you'll miss the bus. For us it happened mostly late afternoon or night (sundowning) so she wouldn't remember the following day thankfully. I hope you find a way of calming her - good luckShe is being more and more like this and is "seeing things" more and more i have noticed also.
She has taken her slippers off and is trying to get her shoes on and i'm trying to stop her, she is swearing at me and saying "You are no son of mine".
There's so much good advice for people who can get about, but my mum was unable to and lost so many cognitive skills and it took all of us to keep her occupied - my mum was a party animal, so keeping her happy took a lot of effort ......Another technique i read on here is to take her out, walk her around the block thus distracting her and then say, shall we go back for a cup of tea now? Mum's cleaner and Me took mum for a drive in the middle of the night to try to calm her, like a baby, and it worked, by the time we got home and had a drink she was tired enough to forget it for the night,
