He is very paranoid and can get very combative. He is still living in a condo with my mom who has her own issues. Neither can take care of the other. My mom is all for moving into assisted living.

My husband has been in an Assisted Living Facility for almost a year. I would like to move him to a better facility because the one he is in has reduced the staff in the evening to only two caregivers. For 28 people and only 2 caregivers, it's a nightmare.
