Hi, I got a letter from my dads surgery , they are introducing a new service for people at risk of unplanned hospital admission (Herts area). A more tailored support from GP. So I signed my 93 year old dad up. it means he gets same doctor every time and i have phone access to that doctor who will reply same day. Also a nurse who will review his condition every 3 months. He has now had a whole group of blood tests and am now waiting for a 1 hour home assesment for his dementia, so that they can give him the correct treatment. This is all very positive for me, i feel a lot less on my own looking after him. He may now get pills to slow the dementia down. But Im not sure that pills are such a great idea as he is already quite bad. Pills To keep him as he is? is a bit of a night mare as he keeps cutting the garden down and rearranging the rooms and grazes in the food cupboards. every time i come home i dread to think what hes done next. (he ate a raw fish last week) ware as if he got worse he may not do these things and sleep more, he might be better to cope with. Anyone here had their patciant take these delaying pills and do they think it was better with or without them?
