In terms of what the social worker tells our loved one about going home? My father has been at this nursing home for about a year (vascular dementia) and we visit him everyday. We have told him that it's temporary until he gets better, even though we know it won't happen. It seems like every 6 months he begs to go "Home" and the social worker tells him that he is allowed to go home for 7 days and it might be good for him. Unfortunately, we just don't have the means to take care of him at home. Can we tell the social worker not stir pot and recommend things that the family is not comfortable with or able to do?
