Ignoring my previous ramblings about a place in the sun!This is the serious one. My dad is in hospital. Since admittance for various reasons my dad's dementia has progressed. Before going in hospital in lived alone with 4 half hour care visits a day. He now needs 24 hour a day support now as he does not have any concept of risk. I think this can be best provided one to one at home. In a nursing home I dont think that they could meet his needs (unless he was given one to one there) and I dont think he would be happy. BUT I feel like everyone is against me. I am sick of social workers, nurses, family and carers telling me he should go into a home. But I am worn down and now starting to doubt myself. I should say my husband, brother and mum all agreed with me that we should at least try him at home prior to resorting to a home if say after 3 weeks care at home is not working. Do you think I am deluded?- if the professional say he needs a home should I accept it? I just feel he deserves a chance even if just for a few weeks at home. Even if it just to say we tried everything before accepting one of the grim local homes. But I feel worn down.
