Oh my lovely I totally understand that, my family consists of my husband & my daughter when she moved back home in September. My son is in Australia.... I’ve not seen him since he left August 2018! My Dad to passed in a way that has raised issues into care in care homes- it’s ongoing even though Dad dies in December 2019- Friday the 13th .. Dad had a sense of humour & would chuckle at that date!You are lucky you have family to help support you. I had no-one apart from my husband who could only do so much. My dad had Safeguarding issues all over the place and a social worker who appeared only occasionally and forced me to move dad from a nursing home where he was happy and settled to one where, on paper, it was better but dad's care wasn't as good and he wasn't as happy. It meant moving him 100 miles when he was approaching the end of life and then two hospital stays. I was then on my own trying to visit to settle dad but it was a lost cause. Dad died 5 months later in a terrible way as the anticipatory medication wasn't used. The system is a mess and however much we try to do right for our loved one it never seems to be enough. I am left heart-broken and blaming myself as I couldn't make my dad's end easier.
i am continuing to follow the safeguarding issues raised! I have spoken to so many & the system is so broken ... only by speaking to my mp do I actually feel that something somewhere might change! I have a lighter heart as I feel as if it’s a possibility of actual change
Would writing to your mp help?
sending you (((((((((((((((hugs)))))))))))))
