My dad is 91 years old and has vascular dementia. He was diagnosed Almost 2 years ago and until 2 months ago, he was doing ok. He would have "fuzzy" days, when nothing he said made sense, but then the next day he would be pretty good again. He would get fixated on stuff, but I could usually distract him and we'd be ok. Now his mind seems always in a state of confusion. We just started in-home care, Monday through Friday, 9 to 5, while I'm at work. This weekend has been a nightmare. He woke up at 5:00 am very upset and crying and I finally got him to go back to sleep. My husband died almost two years ago, and I'm an only child. My two kids try to help me, but I save them for emergencies. I've got to work. On the weekend I do the laundry and try to do a little yard work. I need more help. My dad has always said he never wanted to go into a facility, he wants to stay at home. Our house could work for a live-in care giver. What are the pros/cons of each? Thanks so much.
