He's ambulatory but has some dementia. I would like to be able to have a few hours or even take a vacation and know that there is someone who could check in on him regularly because he can't be by himself. I don't know of any agency in the area and my Dad is a World War II vet. He is somewhat ill tempered, he can't hear well and is just difficult so not everyone would like be a companion for even a short time. But he is a danger because he leaves faucets running, the gas burners on etc.
