My dad has mixed dementia and has been in a CH for the past 15 months. Recently we were advised by the care home that he would require nursing care due to his challenging behaviour and that we should now apply for NHS continuing health care due to his needs. SS have completed their assessment and put him forward to NHS who will be completing another one this week. Can anyone give me any advise on this? Dad was falling frequently until this week when he has been unable to get out of bed and he is frequently aggressive.
