We're back to square one. About two weeks ago, I boasted that my dad had made friends and settled into his new home after 5 weeks. Two days ago he insisted he wanted to go home and worked himself into such a state that we took him from his room to the lounge area where his friends were. One of the reasons may be that he missed some of his closer friends over Christmas who were taken away to spend time with their families. We were a bit worried to do the same but decided to go there and spend time with him. Now he is stuck on wanting to go home but says they're very nice to him there, but it's not his home.
We are at a loss and don't know what to do. We thought the worst was over.
My dad's communication has improved so much. He spoke very little before, but since he's been there, he chats a lot more.
Is it possible for them to like their surroundings one minute and then threaten to go home the next. This is so exhausting and time consuming. We're not sure either whether to visit or stay away again.
