I am generally very happy with the nursing home my dad is living in. It had a really nice 'feel' as soon as we walked in the door and the staff are very caring and have a good relationship with the residents. His room is brilliant as it is on the way to the kitchen so a lot of staff will say hello or have a brief chat when passing his door which used to be wedged open. Unfortunately there was a fire in another residents room (noone hurt, swiftly dealt with) but now all doors have to be kept shut. Dad spends most of his time in bed, or occaisionaly in his recliner but he now seems very isolated and as he gets anxious when he is on his own I can't think this is a good situation. He's more than capable of yelling out when he needs something (and when he doesn't!) but doesn't use the call button. So he relies on either someone being around when he is shouting out or waiting until the staff come to his room specifically. I'm not sure there are any solutions but it has been bugging me for a while. Does anyone have any thoughts?
