Dad has dementia but still with it in some ways and knows who I am. Used an experienced consultant for Senior placement who found a place. Won't be the same as Dads and I am bringing pertinent pictures, items etc for his room. I will be 40 min away. I have faith in the home and care as he will get hair cut, podiatrist, mobile doc, owner lives on premises. Eight total rooms. He has private bath. I still feel he will be lost without his familiar home.
I'm sure normal to feel bad about moving him but he needs the care and currently have 2 helpers and me. I'm worn managing it all as an only child. I am able to take him out and can bring him to my place.
Month to month contract so will have to see how it goes. Not a good idea to have him with me and hired help.
He knows he is coming to AZ and as time gets closer I will share more with him.
I know to expect he may not like it, will want to go home, etc...
