Hi It's been at least a month since i have posted a thread last one is on page 11 "Just a little help about my dad" As he has had lots of water infections over the last couple of months his dementia has got worse, he keeps talking about the war. The home is not helping, I was suppose to take him to his hospital appointment yesterday to have a check on his cataracts - hospital transport booked me there 2 hours before - BUT when I got there he was asleep in his chair with his pjs on could not find a pair of trousers in his wardrobe even though there were at least 6 pairs in there - yes they did have his name on - I could not wake him, his dinner arrived an hour later than normal but noone could wake him, I was made aware then that he has not slept during the night for the past 2 nights and he has become so confused he has even forgotten where his room is when he comes out. I am so mad because the home knew that he had an appointment yesterday but allowed him to be awake during the night, needless to say the nurses had to rearrange his appointment - he now has to wait until 4th september. He has lost a hearing aid, and now he has lost his keys that he locks up his personal items, it is really getting me down, I felt like crying yesterday, I am living in a dream thinking what will I go to see when I see my dad next time I go????? he has a graze on his leg and is complaining with pain there I have asked for the doc to look at this again, and have asked his GP to arrange a unrine sample to be sent to the hospital as he is showing signs of having a water infection but now when they test him it is coming up negative???
