Three years ago my husband and I moved my dad in our home. At that time he was able to do everything for himself and was driving. Things have gone downhill in the past year. He was diagnosed with onset of dementia. He now doesn't drive, needs help getting around with a walker, is wearing diapers and depends on me for other daily needs.
I am an only child and my husband is wonderful with his help.
Here is my question... my husband and I would like to take a vacation and my Dad is not cooperating. I was going to take him to respite care... NO. I was hiring in-home care... NO. He wants to stay home alone and I have a pet sitter that will just check on him. He is in fear someone will hurt him.
I don't know what to do next and I don't want to deny my husband a weeks vacation either.....Help.. what do I do?
