I am wondering if anyone has the experience of flying an Alzheimer's patient in early advanced stage (early stage 6)? My FIL still knows his son somewhat although he has no idea what our roles are and what we do to help him. Is 2 hours direct flight too much? He forgot all about flying and he is like a boy who is curious about the plane in the sky. Maybe he is afraid. When we say we will fly with him, he is a little reluctant. Maybe he thinks he has to fly it or the plane will drop?
We plan to move him in the summer from Chicago to Vermont. The train takes forever with many routes. The drive takes 15 hours and it is no way for my FIL to endure it. He cannot even take 30 minutes drive in a strange place.
Do you think maybe it won't work out? People told us to give him sedative on the trip.
