My Grandad has reached a stage when he no longer reliably recognises his house as home. A few times now he has woken up, decided he needs to go 'home' and started walking. He has been picked up by the police and taken to casualty, who contact my mum. She has worked really hard to enable him to stay in his own home (he lives alone) - she does his shopping, admin, and as much washing/cleaning as he will let her do. No assistive technology has worked for him. After his last visit to casualty she was clear that he can no longer live alone and so a care home is the only other option. He was unexpectedly in agreement with this, and said that he had been trying to 'keep going' for some time. My aunt has links with a good home through work, and fortunately they would have a bed from the beginning of the next week, so my Mum took my Grandad to stay with her in the meantime. This home has always been the eventual plan if needed. He has been at my aunt's house for 2 days and has veered between refusing to admit he has any problems, aggressive behaviour, shouting and packing his bags, to saying he likes having his dinner cooked for him and being quite content. As a result my mum and aunt have been worried that they will have to let him go home again. He has been assessed as lacking capacity and they have power of attorney, so legally can insist that he go into a home for his own safety. Would appreciate any experience and advice regarding this situation - would you explain beforehand or when there,tell the truth or not? Thank you!
