Parents with dementia were moved to assisted living and now they want to go home. They were deathly ill at the same time and I took the opportunity when they were in the hospital to make the transition to assisted living. They have been in this wonderful place for 3 months and decided that they are not as old as the others there and are not supposed to be there. They both have multiple medical and cognitive deficits. I want them to be happy but I know that is not going to ever happen considering their condition. They play off each other to get agitated. Could they be home with a full time care giver? Yes. I would probably have to be more involved yet again. It's been very very stressful for me when they were at home. They don't eat properly and often end up sick from one thing or another; dehydration, over eating, over drinking, skin problems, pneumonia, cellulitis. All the stuff that can start off benign and get bad if not attended to. They have been better at assisted living. Not sure if it would be worse or better at home if they go back there.
