My dad is 80 and has middle stage Alzheimers. He lives with my mom who is amazing and takes care of him so well. The problem is she is worn out and needs a break. She has asked me if my dad can move in with me for 3 days so she can go away and have a rest. I am married and have 2 teenage daughters. Altho my parents come and stay with me overnight about twice a month as they live 1.5 hours away, I have never had to take care of him by myself. He is completely reliant on my mom and even follows her to the bathroom and stands outside the door when she needs the bathroom. I am very concerned that he is going to be traumatized with her being away, in particular for 3 nights, as she hasn't spent a night away from him in the last 10 years. He gets very confused and can't sit still. He still is able to feed himself, altho makes the weirdest sandwiches, but gets confused dressing sometimes apparently. Please can someone give me advice on how I am going to cope with him, especially at night. I don't want him to upset my kids. My husband isn't happy about all of this either.
