I just cant bring myself to put him in a NH. I know he doesnt want to go and I dont want him to go in one. I truely want to take care of him, even though I realize it is a long hard road. My kids are 15, 3 and almost 2. And they love Poppop and he ADORES them. I swear he lives for the kids. So I am not so worried about
that, but my hubby is. My hubby and I have been having some very serious converstations about
it and I think he is coming around to the idea. I really am hoping he decides soon. I think every day that Poppop spends alone now is too long. But for now I will keep doing the best that I can, and I contacted the ALZ association. They are wonderful!! So helpful and full of great tips and suggestions. They are mailing me a movie about
being a caregiver.
Ok, one more quick question.... if and when he starts living with us, I need to know if is ok to leave him alone for short amounts of time? Things like grocery shopping, doctors appointments, etc and also my family goes to my mother in laws every Sunday and we spend most of the day there... can he be home alone that long? He is a homebody and never wants to go anywhere or I would take him.
