My Grandad has been in respite at a nursing home since Christmas. When he went in the staff seemed to think that it was with a view to being permanent. Now we'll not too sure. His 6 weeks is up on 23 February and now the social worker is saying he doesn't need nursing care just a care home. However a district nurse went in to see Grandad to do a review and she said that he does need nursing care!!! They said something about having a meeting. Do they just discuss this and let us know or what!? They also mentioned something about having to get permission for funding for the nursing home as they might not give it if they don't think he needs it. (nursing home is private not council) As a family we'd rather he stayed put as it will be unsettling to move him. Also since he's been there his health has improved loads and he hasn't had any falls. Can anyone tell me how they decide where Grandad should be?
