Reason to give my dad with dementia to go to a daycare.

Started by

My mother is his primary caretaker and needs a break from him. We need a good reason to tell him why he is going. He can still hit golf balls but can't play golf, he can dress himself, talk on the phone but doesn't make much sense. He is stubborn and wants to do what he wants to do which we try to accommodate. If he doesn't get his way, he throws a fit.
