In brief: Dementia

Assuming his dementia is moderate.
Do not argue with him. Send him to a day care facility for daytime activities. Make sure he does not get lost, gets burned or falls. Make sure he takes his medicine the way suggested by dr and pharmacy. Every day reminding him the date. Give him something to do and memory exercises. Do not ever leave him alone. Make sure he exercises or walks every day.
