We have a family member that will be released from the hospital shortly. Because of progressive dementia and other related health issues it seems logical to take the next step and go to long term care rather than let her come home and then in two or three months make the move to LTC. We know that she will only go to LTC screaming and kicking based on our say so alone. On the other side of the issue is dealing with other family members that feel she should be at home. What outside resources are available that will help us make the case for LTC as realistically that appears to be the most logical option.
