Dad, who has late stage vascular dementia, survived 3 months in hospital at the start of the year, has now got COVID. He is in a good care home, in isolation. He is in his 8th day and very poorly. I was able to visit him briefly yesterday as I suspect he is dying. He was unconscious, breathing was rattling, he is not eating or drinking and not taking any medication. He didn’t seem to be in pain. Practice nurse is visiting to check on him. I phoned twice today but no change. This evening the carer told me he got out of bed, I was so shocked, thinking he was much improved. I asked how, she told me, he rolled out of bed and fell on the floor. Surely, he should be secure in bed. I asked when would they contact the gp to review meds and apparently it won’t be until Monday. All I want is for him to be comfortable and pain free. Dreading every day for a phone call.
