Hi am new on here looking for inspiration. My mother lives with my wife and I. We cannot explain why going out during the pandemic is not safe for her or anyone else. If we we say we will go with her she gets angry and violent. She has tried to strangle my wife more than once. Has scratched me so often it is unbelievable. We keep the doors locked as when she goes out she gets lost. Today while I was upstairs she tried to climb over the backgate. When I finally got her down she started to wave a knife at me. Finally had enough and let her go out on her own. Left it for a few minutes then followed her. When she started wobbling caught up with her and brought her home. She acted like nothing had happened. We are at our wits end. Think that the worst thing is that we feel like we are failing her. Just no idea how to get through this.
