Hi fellow carers. At the fourth time of asking about a flu jab for my wife I'm told they have my wife on the list and will get round to her in time. This afternoon I visited the surgery less then five mins walk from our house (wife asleep). I was told there was a clinic to-morrow. As my wife is four years into the final stages and it's only possible to dress her while laying on the bed due to her being rigid. Unable to speak or move for the past four years I believed they expected me to take her to them. How did they think her clothing could be removed whilst sitting in a wheelchair? Maybe they might cut them off like they did in A&E when being resustitated in April. I told the district nurse that no one visits us so how can you know what her condition is? No one followed up after her being rushed to A&E for the second time this year on the 5th Sep. Her response: "Sorry we don't do check ups on patients any more due to limited resources!" My answer: "Why are you people not more honest and say 'We don't care about people in your wife's condition?' I have long acepted it as fact." It's easy for her to say "But we do care" words come easy. It's fearful growing old no wonder Alz suffers wish to get back to homes where they once felt safe and cared for. Sorry I'm upset it's at times like this I wish all these support organisations would just shut up and start acting. God bless Padraig.
