Hi and best wishes, tough times.
My father has live in care and it is currently a good arrangement for his health and happiness. It is also reassuring for me, 110 miles away.
He's only had two different carers this year and both know him well and respond to his changing needs as Alzheimer's progresses.
The cost is the only major downside.
We did a trial stay with us, totally rearranged the downstairs of the house and although our home isn’t small her walking frame proved problematic for her. Then she stopped talking, my husband looked in a continual state of shock at how she was and in the end because she said very little everyone else became the same. In the end she asked when she was going home, she stayed with us a week. It just didn’t work for either us or her.Hi there,
If the PWD needs 24/4 care, as my mum does, they need a team of people working in shifts 24/7 to cope. It would be cheaper for them to go into a care hone I think. My mum pays just over £1,000 a week For Her care home. Everyone in our family works full time, and non of us can afford to give up our job to provide the level of care that’s required to deliver safe care at home. You would be burnt out within months trying to cope, not to mention the mental anguish
