This Week's Carenote

My father may have Alzheimer’s and he keeps going to the neighbor house trying to get in as if it was his house and broke a screen. He also urinated there. Can he be charged as he is 95 years old?

I am an RN who works in nursing homes. I doubt the homeowners would have him arrested, but I am concerned here for his safety. A 95 year old who wanders needs 24/7 watching. It is time to consider options. 24 hour homecare or long term placement is probably needed here, This gentleman could easily get lost or hit by a car. These are tough issues but please get help

The first thing that should come to mind is, GET HIM TO A DOCTOR AND GO WITH HIM.
