Hello! My Father has been diagnosed with kidney failure, heart failure, and renal sarcoidosis, which causes extreme calcium levels (delusion, confusion, weakness and more), his heart is working at 30% and kidney levels are around 4.5 typically. He got discharged from the hospital and they ordered in home physical therapy because they believe he's not weak enough to be in rehab so I'm doing 7 day, 24 hour supervision with him. He doesn't understand how to take his medications and when I quiz him on how much meds he's suppose to take, he never knows, so I don't want him doing his medication on his own. He has random good days and bad days but overall he's able to go about his daily tasks (bathroom, changing, eating, very mild cooking). In 4 months he's been in the hospital 2x, very unwell and was admitted for 2.5 weeks both times, so I worry that we will move him into independent living and something will happen again in the next few months after we sign a lease on an independent living community, then will have to end it just to get assisted living anyways.
I know he's capable of living on his own most days and its about 3-4x cheaper than independent living, It's just his medication and weak days that I'm worried about. Is it worth it to move into Assisted living when its not deemed as "needed"? He also wants to move an hour away from me because he likes the area, which isn't smart if he moves into Independent Living.
