Have been off here for a few days just dealing with the legal stuff and, you know, trying to have a normal life, lots of work on and a cold so trying to rest when I can. The legal stuff is continuing and I am finding it quite stressful. If the case goes all the way dad will need council funding a lot sooner than I'd hoped, and of course we can't know if he'll be able to stay where he is when that happens.
I've had a letter from the local care place saying he's missed his podiatry appointment. CH have no idea how that happened and, to be fair, they keep careful note of his appointments. I have suggested we look to reinstate home visits as although dad seems fine when it turns up for appointments it takes a village to get him there.
Try not to worry about finances, easy to say I know; but care homes have told me that it’s bad form to move a person if they are settled - it’s not in their best interests. Also the council would have to prove that the same level of care is available at a cheaper cost & moving your Dad wouldn’t have a detrimental effect on his well being & happiness.
Any moves for PWD is traumatic & wouldn’t be in his best interests.
