my dad has alzheimers and has been living at home with home care (not enough). he recently had a fall and ended up in hospital. I am being told he cannot come home and that he needs to go into a care home (although I have not seen any assessment on this). he is certainly confused and does struggle but i need to know i am doing right by him and that the care home is the only option. How do I know? He thinks he is fine but he is confused but has good and bad days so sometimes he "presents" quite well. i think that following some respite he may be able to come home with additional support but family members disagree. I know at the very least he will need respite - but the homes we like are all full and so its corporate type or a smaller private home for the interim - the corporate one has a dementia wing which i don't like the sound of and he can only get to the garden if escorted but it does have good food, comfortable beds a decent ish staffing ratio and lots of activities which may draw dad out - the smaller one is a bit more haphazard but he can sit in the garden at will. any views? both have a "good" report but not very illuminating.
