Over the past weeks I have noticed lots of names and numbers cropping up in my mil's diary and also people (we know) telling me they have given her lift to various places locally. She cannot recall any of the lifts or who the people are in her diary. Just today I saw the name Joan and a phone number written down so I decided to call. Spoke to a lovely older woman who had become friends with my mil over last few months. She knew lots of things about my mil and told me she had been waiting for her to call as they had promised to go for walk together. Mil never called andjoan was quite upset. I went to visit her and explained the dementia and something good has come out of this they are now walking partners. My mil hasn't a clue who Joan is. I suppose the point I'm getting at is how do I control who she gets in cars with and gives her number to. She's an extremely attractive woman ( looks about 46) and gets lots of men chatting her up I am scared they will take advantage of her. We were lucky with Joan but other people may not be so nice.
