Seniors living with dementia—Alzheimer’s, Lewy Body dementia, vascular dementia, and frontotemporal dementia—may have difficult behaviors that make it challenging for the family. Often the spouse or elderly parent with dementia refuses to accept their diagnosis. They don’t want care providers in their home. Many refuse to move to a senior care residence.
You worry that they are not safe on their own. You are right to worry.
Even if there is a caregiving spouse, it’s physically draining and emotionally depleting to be “on” 24/7. At some point, help will be required.
