I don't know if this might help, but what if you get one of those key locator things which many people use, if they often misplace their keys. You might be able to hide it in some small corner of your mom's wallet, without letting her know that you've done it. The next time she loses her wallet, you can stop by quickly and magically find it and spend your saved time by visiting her in a stressless atmosphere! I hope that this helps.
As a senior, myself, with two daughters & two grandsons, one living 5 minutes away and the other living 30 minutes away, I am very lonely because I never see my grandkids & their mom and rarely see my closest daughter because they say that they don't have the time to stop by. Since your mom has Alzheimer's, your time to visit with the mom that you know & love may be limited and you may lose her, mentally, much sooner than you expect. Cherish your mom and the time that she has left because, once she's gone either ohysically or mentally, you won't be able to get her back. I was my mom's caregiver for 17 years, ever since my dad died, and she also developed Alzheimer's. Near the end of her life, it greatly disturbed my two brothers, who rarely visited with our mom, that our mom no longer recognized them, but never forgot who I was. Now, I don't know your situation and I apologize if I sound "preachy." That is not my intent. But even a 15 minute visit from my children would mean the world to me and I'm sure that it would be the same for your mom. So, if you could work a short visit with your mom into your regular schedule, I'm sure that your mom would love it and she might even stop losing her wallet. God bless you for watching over your mom.
