My Dad is in hospital, shortly going into residential care. He doesn't understand when I say goodbye that he is in hospital and he wants to come with me, 'you can give me a lift can't you?' and 'can you drop me off at home'. When I explain that he has to stay there and that he's in hospital, he gets really agitated and insists on trying to come with me. The last few times I have been, I have had to tell him a) that I am going to make a phone call and see what I can sort out or b) that I am going to the toilet and will be back shortly. Then I've had to leave! Finding this so hard, can anyone offer any advice ? Thanks.
