My sister and I have been looking after my Dad who has alzheimer's for the last 18 months because of lock-down. We've now decided that it is not safe for him to be at home so he will be going into a care-home next week. The problem is, we just don't know what to say or how to tell him, we've spoken in the past and he has been adamant that he is not going into a home. He has lived in his house for 41 years and loves it here. We did have carers live in with him before the pandemic but his dementia has got worse and the carers would not be able to cope with him. How have other people dealt with it, or talked about it with their loved one, because I know if I told him the truth he will kick off and won't go. I am feeling so guilty and stressed and really don't know what to do for the best. Do we say, he is going on holiday for a bit a stretch the truth to say that he is going into a nursing hotel. It is just so difficult.
