My demented wife goes walking towards the village on a country lane. When in this mode she is unstoppable short of physical violence. I have to follow in the car till she changes her mind because if I walked with her we might get so far from base that it would be hard to walk back. (I am 83.) If I knew why she did this I might be able to alter it. Any suggestions? My best so far is FRUSTRATION at her reduced competence plus childhood feelings of better times. She says she is off to catch a bus or train to "Go Home". There are more interesting and safer local walks but it is always the lane. It is the route by which we came to this retirement village in 2014 and therefore the most obvious escape route. She was always a great walker. I endure this because physical interference might be dangerous and because her traffic sense is extremely cautious. If there was a way of stopping her without bad effects (e.g.increased frustration) I would love to hear it. Providing her with moments of happiness is highly important, but this is stretching it somewhat.
