It is so difficult to deal with our loved one who is having Alzheimers. My mama and I put my Dad in a Dementia care, assisted living place (Prestige Care Inc) in last January. For the first two months it is very baffling for him to remain there and afterward that he become comfortable there and don't want to leave even for a few hours. I even recall one of the attendants in that community told us after leaving him that first day “Leave your guilt at the door, we are here to accept care of him” and that was the best advice ever. It's tough when we leave him a mile away, but I know he will be ok.
My LO tells me the people who take care of her are good to her and she likes it there. That's music to my ears. She says she has lots of friends there. Something she did never had in life prior to this.
The only thing that worries me is that she will have increased needs that will require she be relocated to another facility.
