Hello again. For a change I’d like to share some good news. As you may know from my recent posts on here, my brother with FTD (73 and living alone with care visits) was struggling to cope at home and had a few falls etc. So finally Social Services agreed that he was no longer safe at home and helped me find a placement in a suitable care home to suit his needs. He is there for a 6 week trial which can become permanent if it goes well. Because I live so far away Social Services and the carer were going to transport him ther and both were expecting him to refuse to go. However two days before he was due to be admitted, the morning carer found him on the bathroom floor, again but this time he was in pain so an ambulance was called and he was taken to hospital protesting loudly as he was stretchered out of his home.. He had Xrays and blood tests at hospital but thankfully no broken bones were found. He was lucky to get away with just a sore swollen knee from the fall.. The good thing was the hospital decided he shouldn’t be sent home and agreed to keep him in for an extra night and discharge him straight into the care home. He arrived there very confused and kept asking where he was. That was two days ago and it appears he has settled down and hasn’t mentioned wanting to go home. The care manager called me today to let me know he was comfortable and although he doesn’t like being showered, she said he seems quiet and calm but is preferring to stay in his room and look out the window.. In the last couple of months he seemed to prefer not to talk much. He found it hard to find the words to say what he wanted was less in what was going on around him and staring into space a lot of the time. I’m just so relieved that he’s now safe and cared for 24/7. Thank you all for your support and advice. You were correct in saying he was ready for a care home. It’s still early days but it’s a much better start than I was expecting.
