Hi Can anyone tell me if they have had experience of parents going into a care home together? The time has come(and I can hardly believe I'm writing this)for my dad to go into a care home. We had a meeting yesterday and both SS and the Mental Health team and both recommended dad not go home as he has been in 'assessment' for the past 3 weeks.( We were lead to believe it was respite but that's another story!) Mum was absolutely distraught yesterday when the news was broken to her and just kept saying she wanted to bring dad home. We are now looking into all the options but are 95% sure dad will not be going home as I don't think even the level of care in the home we were suggesting will be accepted and we really don't want to go through a 'best interests' meeting. As mum has dementia too(but not as far down the line as dad) we were wondering about the two of them going together somewhere if mum wanted to although again we are not sure if she would leave her home yet even for dad. WE don't want to mention it until we have explored further. Has anyone had experience of this?
