Our expert says:
Sometimes it could be wise for an old person to move to an institution for their own good, IF they are genuinely incapable of protecting themselves and their own interests. But this would only be done with the opinion of an expert shrink that this was indeed the case - not just because a bossy auntie insists on it.
Ad having prostate problems is not a reason for making such a decision -he should see a urologist for assessment and treatment of the prostate problem.
Tell auntie to stop interfering or you will suggest that SHE should be considered for an institution, before your dad.
