    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    AW! May she be found soon!
    Using the SWAG theory, I'm thinking she has a caregiver because of dementia. Also,, the weather is awful.

    Poor lady. My mother has severe dementia and we have latches at the top of the door that she doesn't know about and can't get to, child proof door knob covers etc. You can buy door stops that make an alarm sound when they are pushed back by opening the door, for the very clever. I wish more people would find ways to stop this!

    I also did this when my mom was still at home, I was terrified I'd fall asleep from exhaustion and not hear her if she left the house.

    The latch at the top of the door is very effective--they tend to never look up at the top. Hopefully someone who takes care of a relative with dementia will read our posts and try it.
    All posts from me are MY OPINION ONLY

    Me too. My grandmother had it too and we had to take parts off her car because she was adamant she could drive. It's all the time we see this!
