crown vs extraction in 97 year old

My 97 year old father who has dementia, has been told by his dentist that he needs a crown on a back tooth used for chewing (I don't know which one it is). My sister wants to just have the tooth pulled. In your experience have seniors done well with tooth extraction instead of a crown?
