60 Year Old Father with Parkinson's
I'm 28 and my father is in a nursing home. He has good moments throughout the day but they only last around 3 hours at a time and then he becomes a different person. He can't move, he wants to go home, he's crabby.
It's all very understandable and I'm very patient with him but I'm at a loss for what kind of things I can take him to do or things he can do to stay occupied in his room.
He also had mild dementia so mentally he has changed, he can no longer do the things he thinks he still can do. Bringing him to the house, he always tries to steal tools and take them back with him.
Take him shopping, he tries to buy things he can't have or doesn't need. I'm all he has....his brothers and sisters are all out of state and my mother and him are separated. Any advice on activities I can do for him??
