My father has… Dementia since a car accident. He is relatively present, and still quiet active. He always wants to wander around and experience things, he likes to meet with people, talk and discuss, and explore the city, go for a walk. This was impossible to realize in Switzerland, because there were too little nurses so they closed them in and sometimes tied him up. However, he was even able to flee from the nursing home and find his way alone home.
When we found him there and called the nursing home how come he is at home, they even tried to sue us for letting him in. Now in Mabuhaii Nursing Homes, he can freely roam around in the gardens and a nurse accompanies him to meetings with other Swiss peoples, for a walk in the park or a shopping spree in the mall. Once a week they bring him out to eat somewhere and have an excursion to a tropical beach or resort. I feel much more reassured knowing him observed by a single nurse all around the clock and that there is someone to spend time with him so he goes to bed tired and not tied up.
