My retired 70-year-old brother lives with his adult son, who works strange hours as a police officer. For various reasons we have concluded that he should not be left alone, including: wheelchair-bound, inability to bathe himself, inability to manage his meds, many chronic conditions and poorly-healed injuries, cognitive issues beyond the already-diagnosed mild memory impairment, and dependent sedentary lifestyle. Assisted living is more cost-effective (and probably better care) than a home care aide. The son is at wit’s end with the situation and wants his dad out of his condo. It would be better care for the dad, and peace of mind with less stress for the son. We have searched for and found a nice assisted living center that my brother’s limited resources can afford. We need a loving way of insisting that he make this move. It’s essentially a loving eviction. His only other option, if he refuses, is to find another living situation on his own, and he doesn’t have the wits or mobility to do so. He has an upcoming annual physical (his first in 2 years) and we have clued in the doctor about the various issues, and asked him to bring up assisted living before we discuss it further. I know this isn’t the ideal scenario for an assisted living discussion in which the loved one feels like he has some choice. It will be a difficult conversation. Any suggestions to make this talk less of a bitter pill for my brother?
