Hi All Just worry overflowing I suppose and I don't know what to do for the best. My Dad was taken into a hospital catering for dementia as an emergency measure when his mobility/continence deteriorated and Mum couldn't manage at home. He's been there almost 7 weeks and has gone downhill a long way (he has lung cancer and angina too), he hasn't eaten anything for the last almost 3 days as far as I know (we've been in 3 times over the weekend) and has drunk very little and seems to be asleep most of the time (although just last Wednesday he had at least one bright day when he ate and 'chatted' with my Mum and kissed her hand when she left). We have been trying to organize a nursing home and are waiting to hear if one will take him today, but now Mum's GP has get her all worried about moving Dad after Mum told her how he has been the last few days when she saw her today. She seems to think he shouldn't be moved at all. If we do get offered the place at the nursing home it would be a 'nicer' place for Dad to be I think, but now I don't know if it will do Dad more harm than good to move him.
