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.
