My Dad is in a terrible way. His dementia is mainly forgetfulness but to the point he doesn't retain any information. He's becoming increasingly frail too, taking 45 mins to dress, an hour to eat a meal and I think he's becoming incontinent. He had NHS nurses twice a day who are concerned for his safety, an Age UK home help once a week and me for a full day once a week. He won't let the nurses regulate his insulin (he's a type 1 diabetic) and he regularly takes extra doses. The nurses are aware, we got a locked box but somehow he took more anyway and collapsed in the street, breaking his arm. Only the day before a 30 year old drug addict who befriended him was found by the police hiding in his house. It appears she opened the window locks and has been letting herself in for ages. He's been a safe guarding risk for about 2 years because of this woman. She's very well known to police for taking advantage of people and is a serious risk. Although his phone was found in her possession, she can't be charged with anything as it's his word against hers and the CPS say he doesn't have mental capacity. Now in hosptial, I've made it very clear and so have the NHS nurses that he needs to go into a home. He's 100% not safe at home. The hosptial are holding him against his will on a DOLs for now but won't/can't tell me what they plan to do for the future. He's self funding and I've found the perfect home for him. They're going to visit him in hospital with me on Friday and see if they meet his needs (I really hope so!). My question is, will the hospital/social services let him go into a home? What's the process from here? Everyone seems to agree he can't go home but no one is communicating with me at all. I don't have power of attorney. It's in process and the OPG have all the forms. Finance will be granted at the end of the month. Health and Welfare not for 8 weeks as the 1st forms had to be redone.
