For the past year, my 80 year old BIL has been in a very nice, new AL facility because of a hip replacement gone bad and incontinence. He has to use a walker to walk. He has decided that he would be better off at home because his friends no longer visit him. He’s convinced he would be fine with meals on wheels, that he could monitor his own medication, etc. He went to AL because he wasnt able to care for himself at home. His LT care insurance covers the expenses at the AL so it is not a monetary issue. My 58 year old son is his only relative, caregiver and POA. BIL is adamant he is going “home”.
