H, I have just joined this forum as we are going through a dementia diagnosis for my 76 year old dad. We have not been told what type as we are waiting for an appointment with the consultant later in the month. Dad lives in a big house on his own but his condition has really deteriorated in the last 6 months. He has had his driving license revoked as we were concerned as he was getting lost. We have managed to get power of attorney sorted before the condition got too bad as we realised he was struggling. We have a carer that drives dad to town each day to see friends and helps with cleaning. His confusion is getting worse. His short term memory is very poor and he is now struggling with telling the time and making plans. We are conscious that dad is struggling in the house he is in and needs to be within walking distance from town as he is needing company more and more and becomes agitated when he is home on his own. There is a lovely apartment available to buy in town with a 24 hour warden which would be ideal for dad. We are in a position to buy it for him and provide care for him. He would also be nearer to me and my brother. The problem we have is how to explain to dad that moving is the best for him. Does anybody have any experience of moving a dementia sufferer to a new home and how to approach it. Any help and advice swould be very gratefully received as this is all so new.
