Dad has been with us for two stays - one in January that lasted until March, and another from end of October until now. He is currently away visiting with relatives at his home in the lake, but will return this week. We have a room available for him to move into at the independent care facility he likes by the end of January. He is currently renting a room at a different facility related to the one he likes, because it allowed him to move higher up on a list for move-ins at his favorite place. We are simply waiting until the new apartment is ready for move-in.
My husband is tired of him being at our house. He wants him to move into the apartment he’s leasing now (he’s never lived in it) for the last few weeks until the new apartment is ready.
I don’t want my dad to feel unwanted (even though he is, I guess), and I think having to stay in an unfurnished apartment for 2-3 weeks until the one he wants is ready will emphasize this. He is struggling with short-term memory loss, lack of mobility (he uses a walker to get around) and incontinence. He’s not an easy patient.
