Well this is just thinking aloud so to speak. My dad is currently in hospital and the pressure from everyone to put him in a nursing home. But ALL those looked at locally are not suitable. Basically dark, dingy and no idea how to meet his needs. Plus very expensive. He needs 24 hour one to one care. I want this at home but I am being fought by social services and now the nurses at the hospital. Despite him only needing one person to help him mobilize in hospital all seem to think home even with a team of carers having him at home would be unsuitable. So thoroughly depressed by the local homes I have just had a look at care homes in India (my brother lives there) and Thailand (we have been there several times on holiday and have friends there)and they look great by comparison. Particularly as my dad has always loved the sun. I realise this may have changed now AD is advanced but all previous summers my dad happily lies in the garden soaking up the sun dawn to dusk. He is so much happier in the sun. I am I mad thinking of sending him to the sun? I should point out that this is just a left field idea, but do desperate times call for desperate measures?
