Should an Alzheimer's patient be moved between facilities?
Someone with Alzheimer's -- should they be moved from one nursing home to another if they are used to the nursing home they are in at the moment?
I would avoid moving an Alzheimer's patient from facility to facility. You may encounter situations that may be appropriate for this to take place, such as abuse or moving them closer to you (if it's a dramatic distance.
Moving someone causes greater confusion and the person may begin to act out. Comfort and routine are everything for the Alzheimer's patient.
I apologize for the delayed response and hope this helps. Deborah Cooke
