My husband and I found what we thought would be the perfect fit for my husband's brother. It is a "locked ALF", where you must have a code to enter or exit the building and is right here at home.
We made several visits with the ED there and everything seemed to be going so positive. Then she just decides she feels she can not take him there due to his "wandering" (he will not try to wander away from the building but he "wanders" within) and that he was a fall risk. Therefore, suggesting a "Memory Care Unit" for him.
The thing is, he was already in a Memory Care Unit before he went to SN for rehab (after surgery) and was a "wanderer" and "fall risk" there. The care was not any different.
We really would like him at this facility (if indeed they truly can take care of his needs)
What do you all think?
