For those of you that don't know my Grandad is in a nursing home for 6 weeks respite. He was in the middle of being assessed to see whether he could stay there permanently or whether he would have to be moved to a care home instead. Well on Wednesday, Grandad "got out" of the home and no-one noticed!!! Apparantly someone on the street saw him standing in the garden and went and told the staff - thank god! This caused a right stir amongst the management and they then called the SW to say that he coudln't possibly stay with them if he is mobile enough to escape!!!!! Never mind the fact that they weren't watching him properly. Anyway, the next day he was moved to a care home. My Nan said that he seems to be OK about the move and as it happens the new home is closer to Nan and Grandad's house so visiting will be easier. He is still in a respite bed though so we don't know whether he'll have to be moved again on 23 Feb. I just don't know what to think. He got moved so quickly Nan didn't even get a chance to speak/complain to the staff at the old home. Nan seems to want to just forget about it but I'm not impressed with the fact Grandad was wandering and no-one even knew!!
