First, a belated thanks to this board for all the support the past 2 years. Dad is in Assisted Living now (went in last November) and Medicaid was approved two weeks ago. Yay. This board was a huge support to me even if I did not post often. So thank you.
My question now is this: The facility has allowed my father to manage his own medications but recently he is getting more confused and not storing/taking his meds correctly. The nursing director gave me the heads-up that he is going to switch the meds to being administered by the facility. I am fine with this. But dad is going to flip out over it. How do I convince him that it's the right thing to do? The last time the facility was going to do this they gave him one more try. Obviously it didn't work. At that time my father was livid that they were taking away this part of his control and would rant to me all day for a week. Any advice?
