Mom has AD and is living alone and is off her meds. Ever since XMAS she has taken a turn for the worst. She has been reluctant to go the doctor and I live 2 hours away. She has a few friends but recently the police were called because the neighbors heard a scream and then saw her run into the meddle of the street at night. Social services were called as well and are trying to get her to get her meds. It is hard because again today the police called because my mom actually called them. My question though is there a program that will make sure she takes her meds? Once she is on her meds she is great... but I can't be there everyday to remind her. I also don't have the money to pay for a caregiver either but someone that can go into her home for about 5 minutes for a month to get her back to normal. Any ideas help!
