How Do I Convince My Dad With Late Stage Dementia That He Needs To Be In Assisted Living?

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.

I have bouts of feeling like I am failing him too. Thats when I have "a little talk with Jesus" and that helps me tremendously. Pick yourself up when you have this feeling. Im sure your doing great.

My Mom is 90 prob mid stage Alz and quite spry, social, friendly with many - but no true best friend. She's agreeable and kind, She does get frustrated at times and many periods of low energy, feeling tired, just don't feel right without anything obvious going on.

Does Anyone Have The Experience Of Moving Someone From One Facility To Another?

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. These two caregivers are responsible for dinner, serving the food, clearing the tables, doing the meds, getting them ready for bed, etc. I don't feel he and others are getting quality care. But everyone I've talked to says don't move him… read more

Hoiw Do You Determine When To Put Patient In Memory Care Or Other Facility?

He is 90 and sleeps most of the day. I can handle that. It is the constant asking the same questions over and over that get to me. Am I just selfish for wanting peace at night?
