Hi, I have just joined as I am desperate for help please. I am the sole carer for my 91 year old dad who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s about 6 years ago. I moved in with him to look after him, to be honest everything has been ok, apart from the obvious repeating and continuous questions, very mobile walked very well without any aids, that was until last Wednesday when he suddenly stopped eating and was complaining of bad stomach pains, he really didn’t look very well so I phoned 111, who called for an ambulance. Dad got a thorough check over at home, everything was fine, they couldn’t find any obvious things wrong so they left. Following day he didn’t want to get out of bed & looked really ill, I phoned GP who diagnosed a urine infection (over the phone) antibiotics given. He has been in bed now for over a week and still hasn’t eaten, called the doctor out today & said he couldn’t find anything obvious wrong with him & just left??? Didn’t seem at all concerned that he hadn’t eaten for over a week. Forgot to mention that he can now hardly walk all of a sudden. Really don’t know what to do now, how can I just leave him like this?? Heartbreaking.
