In brief: Educate and evaluate
Education about dementia is very important.
The alzheimers association has a website www.Alz.Org that has helpful information and contacts. Specifically for home safety an occupational therapy evaluation with a tool such as the allen cognitive level test can be very helpful in ensuring your mom has the right help to be safe and have the least amount of stress possible.
