Yes, his situation deteriorated quite quickly. We removed most of the devices and utensils from the kitchen and had to lock the main door and some windows when we left him in the evening. Although weekly, he goes to the Daycare for three days and has a companion from us and the church volunteer, when he has to stay at home alone, no matter in the evening or weekend (we can't stay there 24 hours), we are always worrying about he might hurt himself.How is your Father in Law, P? He used to be in these photos but I know that his mood was transitioning in the wrong directions recently. Hugs.
Another concern is staying in a house alone almost every evening, with no one to talk to (although he can no longer make a meaningful conversation)...it's stressful for him, too. He used to say recently, almost every day - I wish I could die as soon as possible.
He already can't recognize his home and always asks when we can bring him home. So we applied and were on the waiting lists of several nursing houses in the surrounding. Yesterday, we got a confirmation from the one in our town. This afternoon, we went to check the environment - it's clean, bright, simple, but comparatively safe. His room is ready, and we will start to bring some more furniture and paintings he loves. We will visit him daily like we are doing now, but not spending two to three hours in a car is really good news for us.
