Father-in-law is in dementia ward at a nursing home. He's not "gone", very aware of what's going on, and his kids feel it's too early for him to be in this environment. His issues are at night, sleep walking, and he has to be supervised so he doesn't wonder off, but overall, can have conversations with you and is aware, and does remember things...is there facilities that can be an in-between since his children believe it's too early to keep him in a dementia facility 24-7. Their step-mother placed him in the facility telling him it was on a trial basis, and that he will be there a month this Saturday. She told him she would move there if the trial worked out, however, the children are getting two different stories from their step-mother and their step-sister. The house is not up for sale yet, and step-sister is selling her home, making the children believe that she may move in with her mother instead of mother moving to the assisted living area of this facility where the children's father is now.
