Hi @MrsV, I'm just catching up on your post, the lack of recognition is one of the most difficult things to deal with. The latest development must have been shocking and frightening to witness, I feel for you. Have to checked to ensure that at the moment she has no underlying medical issues e.g. a UTI, that might be causing increased confusion? Assuming that there is no underlying medical issue that does become a safeguarding issue with Mum. It may be worth exploring additional measures like alarms on the doors and cameras. When my Mum started wandering on her walking frame (as she no longer recognised her own bungalow) that was a line in the sand and we agreed to look at residential care, and actually Mum was far more content and assured in residential care, even though she had resisted it at her earlier stage of dementia - at that time she was having four home care visits a day (and me attending in the afternoon). I really feel for you as it is such a worry. Stay strong and keep posting.She didnt know why she was there with the door wide open, said she's looking for us all. This has never happened before, this is something new.
