Hi Peggy, thanks for writing in! I have a strong feeling he’s talking about a place that no longer exists. For example, most of the people with dementia that I’ve heard talk about “home,” or, “the other place,” are actually referring to the home they grew up in, or perhaps the first house they bought as an adult. My best recommendation is to “push it off,” like to say, “Let’s eat here first,” or, “I want to make sure you see the doctor here.” The key is to make the stay at the community feel temporary instead of indefinite. I think you’re doing the right thing by telling him to stay there and you’ll see him soon.
