Hello all! I would really like some advice on the subject of getting my partner and his brother (both in their 20s) to go and visit their grandfather, who has Alzheimer's. I am an activities co-ordinator in a care home for residents with dementia, and while it can be hard at times to understand their world, the two questions that are most clear and fervent are 'when am I going home?' and 'when am I seeing my family?'. It breaks my heart that these young men won't go to visit their grandfather to bring him much-needed company and reassurance, and it angers me that they don't seem to appreciate him. I myself only knew one grandparent, and I would give my life to allow her one more minute of hers. Has anyone had any experience with getting young people more involved? They have plenty of free time, and I don't want to push or pry too much, but I was considering that perhaps their reluctance is down to them wanting to avoid a sad or hurtful experience.
