Dementia Dad wants a vacation. What to do?
My father has lewy body dementia.. Can't see, is wheelchair bound, has some horrible hallucinations (little people w/ big black eyes that want to kill him and my dogs), and his short-term memory is failing a bit..
Here is my dilemna.. He wants to go on vacation.. Ideal vacation spot for him is Florida.. This would mean either 24 hours in the car or a 2 - 3 hour flight.. Part of me wants to take him, but realistically, I wouldn't be able to handle him on my own..
Has anyone travelled w/ a loved one who has dementia / AD..? Should I take his caregiver..? Find someone in the vacation state..? It's just me.. Torn..!
