He is now legally blind, almost deaf, and was newly diagnosed with Vascular Dementia. We just moved Dad, 96 years old, to Summerwood in CT. My bro is POA who is caregiver. Bro is fried like we are now and hopes to wean dependency out of father by leaving him in AL for 2 weeks and see what happens This is upsetting sister and I. She's in Fl and I live an hour and a half away. I see Dad once a month, noticing memory in steady decline. Although Dad is in a palace with a caring AL staff, they can't be with him like an aide. My rich bro and Dad has funds too. refuses to give Dad an aide even a day a week because Dad will keep asking him, when she is coming. Bro did a pretty good job till now. Can Dad possibly improve his emotional dependency when he has so many obstacles? Will the AL insist Dad get more help?
I appreciate your suggestions. Thanking you in advance.
