My reason was also to keep my husband safe @Dutchman.Can I ask anyone , when/ what we’re the circumstances when it felt right to consider a home for the PWD
He was losing mobility and forgot when he wanted to get up in the night. This caused him to fall and I had to call paramedics out almost nightly to help him up.
At the same stage, he was still sundowning and went walkabout, again almost every evening. It was January and dark and even the winter weather could not keep him in.
He insisted on going home to his real wife and his family.
There was no way I could restain him. He was only a little man but was much stronger than I was.
I was at the end of the line and with our son, made the most painful decision.
By coincidence, at the same time, my husband`s CPN and SW decided they could no longer support me to keep my husband at home because I could no longer meet his needs and we were both at risk.
