Answers to your questions about Alzheimer's | desmoinesregister.com | The Des Moines Register: "The Alzheimer's Association would not recommend taking your mother out of the nursing home for an overnight stay. Persons with Alzheimer's generally do better with routines that are predictable and familiar. Changing the routine or setting can be confusing and disruptive for people with Alzheimer's and may have negative consequences. A major change including an overnight stay at a different place with unfamiliar surroundings, has the potential to be very disruptive. Family members know best what is good for their loved one, and you should go with your instinct and stick with short outings daytime outings rather than an overnight stay."
