I have made an appointment to do an assessment for dad for residential care.Im hoping to put him on the waiting list. I used to work there and dad goes there every month (against his will) to have a bath as he cannot have one at home or a shower.(cannot stand without gutter frame and cannot walk up into the shower cubicle.) Apparently ,when he was there last week he was very irritable and short tempered. I have run through dads health issues (declining diabetic kidney function now 38 egfr ,catheter,heart failure NYHA stage 111,vascular dementia and stroke) She feels he may be on the cusp of nursing.( I have felt this for a while) Plus,he had an bowel accident overnight the other night . So when I come to do the assessment it is going to be fun..Not!
