Hi I haven't posted here for a while but now the situation has changed. Briefly my Mum died early last year and Dad rapidly went down hill, although he had appeared confused for a while but I ignored it while she was in hospital. We moved him from B'ham to Gloucester, where we live, to be in a supported-living flat. He liked the flat and we visited every day to support him. Unfortunately on 7 October he night wandered (4.00 a.m.) into the back garden and fell over a wall while 'escaping the Germans'. This resulted in a broken hip. He was discharged to a care home but then re-admitted to hospital on 7 December due to his hip being infected. We are now approaching the point at which he will be discharged. He is now a self funder. He wants to go back to the flat and they are tentatively OK to have him back but there is a health and safely issue with the night wandering. He now walks with a frame so I'm hoping that this will stop him walking around or getting to the local taxi rank. The owner of the flats has said that it will probably be a condition of his return that we have Telecare install an alarm under his door mat that says he shouldn't leave the flat and will also put a call through to my mobile so I can get down there to see what he's doing. He is usually up at 4.00 a.m.and staff don't arrive until 8.00 a.m. I know from previous posts here that night wandering usually signals a move to a home but my Dad doesn't want to go into one (a typical comment I'm sure). We think his reduced mobility might mean that this will work (we live 15min drive from the flats). Any comments on this type of experience would be welcome. Many thanks in advance.
