My dad who is 81 has been diagnosed with AD and is presently in hospital where his medication is being stabilised (he also has Diabetes). We had a meeting today at the hospital with themedical staff and sicial services to decide where he will go next and it was generally decided that he would not be going home as my mum would be unable to cope with him alone. The social worker say's she will be looking for a suitable placement for him. When I asked her about the cost she said that he will have a financial assessment. I would be grateful for any advice or experiences anyone has had in this area.
