My dad is declining fast. He has COPD and also can't walk well at all. Literally two weeks ago he was driving (foolishly of course, but still doing it). I took off work to help get him diagnosed and to help get him the care he needs. He can't recall a conversation we had a minute ago, but he's slightly aware that something is going wrong. The five days I've been here, he's not aware of where he is when he wakes up. He believes he's in his home town 20 years ago, so is confused when he doesn't recognize things. He has COPD, is a major fall risk, and has many medications. He needs 24/7 care without a doubt. He really can't be left alone, else he may get an idea in his head and forget he needs his walker, and have a major fall (he's had 3 in the last 7 months.) If memory care near me ends up being the best option, I'll be taking him from his female companion (who loves him very much but can no longer handle this disease) and his cat, the two things he recognizes and loves. What kind and gentle fib has anyone used to get their loved ones set up in an appropriate memory care center?
