So my dad has been in AL for about a month. They were fine with him drinking beer in his room and he could smoke outside. He kept smoking in his room and they were very patient about it. We kept talking to him and telling him he can’t and finally took away his cigarettes from him. Now he gets cigarettes from the other residents and still is smoking in the room, and still telling you he isn’t. I really believed it was his dementia causing this. However, now I'm realizing he just doesn’t care. He boldly lies to my face and when you call him on it he doesn’t care he is hurting you.
They are going to kick him out soon. Where do I go from here? Living with me is not an option as I travel a lot and I’m not willing to risk my new marriage having him here. Am I going to be in this exact same situation in another month?
Scared, tired and feeling very guilty.
