Hi all, I am looking for some advice around what alternatives to residential care there may be. My father in law has advanced Alzheimers and is unable to care for himself and he needs to be supervised 24\7. His wife fell recently and broke her femur in two places and so is currently in hospital. When she is discharged both she and he will require care. Currently my wife and her siblings are caring for their father and they have discussed having him temporarily placed in a home while their mother recovers. The view of the majority is that they don't want to do this, so my question is what support is available to my father in law to enable him to remain at home and will relieve my wife and her siblings of providing him with 24 hour care themselves? Grateful for all advice. Thank you.
