RE: How do I deal with a parent who has dementia? They refuse to go to a nursing home.
Adults in the throes of cognitive decline do not know what they need. They are terrified of change, even if it represents improvement . This is probably not the first tough decision you will need to make in the months and years to come.

It might be possible to present the move (to a memory care facility) as a temporary thing -a trial. My mother always told me that she was ready to leave (her facility) and “go home now”. I’d smile, change the subject, or say something like “it’ll be a few more weeks before that.”

She did not recall anything she said or heard me say, so this was a compassionate and practical approach for a long time. … it lasted 5 years. She was eventually expelled from this facility because her decline was so serious. When she entered hospice she came to live with me for a brutal, heart-breaking two months after which I placed her into a facility which offered hospice. She died 6 months later.

There does not exist a solution which will feel good - you will have heartache. Many have been where you are now. Hang in there ~
