I'm hoping someone might have had experience of the following. My mother was diagnosed with vascular dementia and has now been placed in residential care as my father was unable to cope with her wanting to 'go home' and the resulting in aggression. Having tried all possible routes we were advised residential care was the only way forward and mum is now settling in to the home. However dad still wants to bring her home to 'visit' the house and has been given conflicting advice on whether this is a good thing. The local GP says yes whereas the Mental Health consultant says no. Does anyone else have experience of this dilemma?
