Care homes for younger people


Registered User

My husband is 62 and was diagnosed with Alzheimers about 3 years ago. He is still able bodied and mostly continent but can be aggressive and has great difficulty talking.
He is on Anti-psychotics because of aggression.
My problem is that two attempts at respite have failed in homes who don't have any similar patients. He is usually younger than most others and has become aggressive with carers and other patients.
I wonder if anyone, anywhere has found a good affordable care home that is suitable for younger able bodied people.
I have given up on the idea of care home respite but think permanent care is not so far away and I think I need to start the search.
