My mother has Alzheimer’s. It is still in the early stages, so wandering off and getting lost had never happened before.
Recently, she went for a walk up Westwood Drive and became disoriented and panicked. She did not recognize her surroundings and became extremely upset.
She knocked on a door of a nearby house and explained her situation. Luckily, she still remembers her address and the man that lived there drove her home.
As she currently remembers very little of her daily events the fact that she was able to piece together the details of her "adventure" shows how traumatic it was.
She wanted to thank the person who helped her, but is unable to remember where the house is, so I thought I would post a thank you here.
Thank you for your kindness, patience and for your help.
