Convincing the family my Uncle issafe in assisted living.
In August this yr. my Uncle was declared incapable of living by himself any more because of his dementia. Seeing I had helped him with many of his tasks, I became his Guardian. We have a good releationship and he trusts me. Because there was no one he could live with I found a really nice place for Memory Impaired- Assisted Living. I have been very pleased with the place but my Uncle never stops talking about getting out and going back to his home. My mother does not get to visit much but when she does, he tells her the same thing- non stop- and complains about his room mates (he's been changed at least 3 times- twice due to problems of the 2 getting along). He's also said that the other residents have pushed him, hit him and talks about very strong disagreements. I know they are not true except for some issues of people getting along with each other. When my mother leaves she is always upset because he is so unhappy and I believe she does not really think he belongs there and I think she believe most of his "stories". Can someone point me to some information that explains that this behavior is somewhat normal in people with Demenia. I hate to see her thinking he is not in a good place
