The Residential Home Care Network

My Dad is 80 and lives by himself and I noticed he is forgetting where he put stuff. He is getting real cranky and wants to sleep all the time. Hates taking a bath. I’m afraid to leave him alone. Should he be in a nursing home or an assisted living facility?

Hi Carol, I would recommend you begin with your primary care physician and let them know your concerns. They will make referrals to have your dad evaluated and together once properly diagnosed you will be more informed about your options. If it is determined that he is not ready for a nursing home then please tour the homes on this site and visit with the providers listed. They are subject matter experts, some with many years of experience.
