Looking for some advice and suggestions for transitioning my 95 year old father into my home. He has been living independently in his home of 59 years since my mother passed away in 2012 (his wife of 64 years). He is capable of dressing, bathing, cooking etc. but in the last few months has needed more assistance with larger house hold chores and has recently stopped driving. He is the sweetest man there ever was and although he would love to stay in his home, has began feeling uncomfortable and my sisters and I have been taking turns staying with him. He is up for moving in with me and my husband (our 4 children are no longer living at home) and wants that over going to any kind of facility as do we. We plan to set a couple rooms up in our house with furniture and special things from his home to make him feel comfortable but know that this is going to be difficult move for him. Biggest reason to move him is because he has major issues lately with short term memory loss and we feel that he is not safe alone anymore, as does he. Just looking for any suggestions on how to make this transition easiest for him.
His home will be put up for sale, but we plan to move him in with us first and get him settled there so he does not have to see his home emptied, and sold etc.
