I agree that it isn't normal for the staff to discourage your visits. No one has ever mentioned that to us even when my Mom complains about
being in the Home(that she chose). We took Mom to Her home 4 times but then we stopped since she told several family members, that if she ever went to Her home again that she would never go back to the Home, where she is. I know that is true. We feel bad about
it but she has severe OA, can barely walk and her memory is awful.
As far as your Dad, if you think that he will go back to the Home after his visit to the cabin, then go for it. Just be prepared that you may end up looking after him until your Mom gets back from her cruise.
Alzheimers/Dementia is a very difficult and sad situation for all involved unfortunately. :(
