My father-in-law has Alzheimer’s and is in assisted living. He’s entered another stage of Alzheimer’s recently, and this has really ramped up his neediness (for lack of a better word). Visits help calm him down but we can’t visit him every day.
My husband and I are considering hiring someone from an agency like ‘Home Instead’ to keep him a bit more entertained. Taking him on walks (nearby, of course), playing games, and just keeping his mind occupied. We’re thinking possibly 3 times per week.
His finances are in good shape, so this is something he can afford.
I’d appreciate any feedback on this subject.
Thank you very much.
