Mother, age 90, has early Alzheimer's and advanced dementia. My sister does not want Mother to awaken without family present on Christmas morning at the Assisted Living facility. In my opinion, if Mother stays in my sister's home overnight, the changes in routine and the absence of Mother's regular caregivers will be disruptive and could give Mother mixed messages about her need for assisted living. Mother lived with this daughter about 2 years prior to moving into assisted living. Mother thinks she will recover and eventually return to her own home. Mother has not requested to return to her daughter's home since moving from there. Mother would be away from the facility approximately 20 hours as there is a big dinner on Christmas Eve early in the evening at the home of Mother's niece. My sister's teenage daughter (14 yrs. of age) is usually excited, very active and loud - especially on Christmas morning after discovering and opening "Santa's" gifts.
