My father has been taken care of in our home for the last couple years. He has declined significantly this spring and has become unsafe to himself, us and our pets. He cannot be left alone anymore, which is unsustainable for our household. I have been in contact with local memory care facilities, and have picked a good option. I have no idea now, how to get my father safely into the facility. His father died at home from Alzheimers in the '50s. I don't know if he had a bad experience with a nursing care type facility back in that time frame, but he has always had a negative opinion of senior group living and has said that he would never go into a "senior living facility".
I truly believe he will do better once he settles in, I just don't know how to get him there calmly. The director of the center has made a couple suggestions that I don't think will hold water with him when the time comes.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
