There are many things that "should" happen like someone with alzheimers should stop driving, should shower themselves, should take their meds...but there is nothing requiring them to do that. Nothing requiring to go to the doctor, nothing preventing them from giving large sums of money to people they hardly know. Pretty much if they can feed themselves and write their name - there is no real support for family with a combative Alzheimer's family member. Does anyone have any ideas on how to make this manageable? For example, if we just took my father's keys away so he can't drive or took his car...we could be arrested for theft if he called! It's so frustrating. Does anyone have any ideas on how to make this manageable?
