We know that feeling too well, looking after parents is very hard as you want to go but have to stay......
Thanks it is not easy just have to do it no care home. You may ask why the next door neighbour I poped in every day had dementure and kidney failure had to call 999 four times and let her brother know. She ended in a care home and lasted two months. I went there one friday and the a couple of days later and could see she needed a doctor told them to get one now as she was bad they said the doctor only came on a tuesday and thursday well you can vision my reply got banned from the care home but the doctor did come. Her brother got banned for feeding her . Did put in a complaint to the quality care commision and her brother to. Did a few times but did not help as she passed away . Outcome from the complaints after the nurse was sacked .I have no idea what I am on about as after a meeting today she has kidney failure not liver plus s few other things.
Outcome after a heated argument with council social worker (who wanted to send her to a care home) and a very nice doctor she is going to be assessed by the nhs in a hospital not the bloody council in a care home for her long term care plan.
the council would only pay for 2 weeks in the home and wouldnot say what would happen after, as if we could not work that out ourselves.
social worker kept on about the high cost bed in a hospital ward.....I could have thrown her out the bloody window.
hpold , I feel for you...good luck.
risky. Thanks for your post I feel better now..
van looks great with a cracking plateHi all
This is our "new" project. Having tried the Caravan and Delica approach for our adventures we decided that a basic "stealth" camper van would suit us best for what we want to do.
Here's a link to the work in progress.
