    I'm desperate to move my hubby from the unsafe care he gets L.A.say not in his best interest.i have challenged the decision it's going to the court of protection he could be dead by that time.every thing I question they twist and have an answere.he's left in dirty pads ,food round his face and clothes,it takes my visit to say something to give him his dignity back.Other residents wear his clothes hats socks tops bottoms all are named they can't find his shoes it happened last year he escaped missing for two hours befor they noticed ,police found him' face smashed collapsed a mile away hospitalised ,there's a lot more today but I'm exhausted
