I am sure he knows this but it needs to be repeated, sometimes often.
It is not her it is the disease that makes her say things or act like that.
If your Mom is safe in your house tell your son if there is another time when he feels scared or threatend by your Mom he can leave the house and just go outside to play or go to a friends. He should call you however and let you know. This way you know where your Mom is and where your son is. This would also be a good way to monitor how often she is having these outbursts. This might be another decline that you have to watch and if it becomes apparent that she is wandering or becomes violent you may have to rethink living arrangements.
Or if your Moms caregiver is there your son could call the caregiver and have the caregiver come get Mom.
If the caregiver is there all the time I am wondering why the caregiver allows your Mom to wander off. Today might be just into your house but next week it might be the neighbors house or she just might walk away.
