Assisted living private pay homes.
I finally got my father, 90 years old, placed in an assisted living care. He seems to do OK. But he has these bouts where he tries to bully the staff to let him go back to Pittsburgh which is 8 to 9 hours away from where he is now on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. My father is 6'4" and weighs 145 pound. He can be a very daunting subject when he starts waving his hands around and demanding things. The nursing staff do with him except when he gets like this they don't seem to know what to do and they call me. Now I speak to my father almost everyday on the phone and we go see him once a week. But when he calls me in a frantic mood and they ask me to try to calm him down, I feel that they aren't doing their job. Am I right about this? Or is this how it really works because it seems to just keep me very upset and it doesn't do him any good. My husband are Sr. Citizens too. We are tired. Advice please. Thank you
