Hi. This is the first time that I have posted on this forum. We have had a very difficult weekend with my Mum. My Dad has been in hospital for 3 nights and Mum has been staying with me and my brother. Mum was ok initially but very confused. The second night when my brother brought her home Mum kicked him and slapped him round the face as she wanted to go back to Dad. She said that my brother had touched her inappropriately which obviously did not happen. I believe that this is a delusion? She then ran into the middle of the road. My brother managed to get her to come indoors and she was ok that evening, all of the next day and the following evening. Yesterday when my brother woke up my Mum had left the house on her own and went missing. We had to call the Police and they eventually located her at a Police station. A very kind lady had picked her up on an industrial estate 1.5 miles from my house and taken her there. Thankfully she was ok, but it could have been so much worse. She has never wandered before. My poor Dad was so upset and worried. He was discharged yesterday morning after a minor op and is doing ok. I am with them today. Dad is getting a new lock on their front door that can have a key removed and the rest of the house is secure. Mum has agreed to go to the doctors again and we have made an appointment for her. Dad says that he can manage ok. We were all obviously very worried and upset about the events this weekend and I need some clarity on the way forward. I would appreciate any advice. Thank you.
