I try to get him to shower, go out for a walk, meet his friends etc and maybe that’s just too much for him.
Hi @Sunshine11!I feel like I am need of help and don't know where to turn.
I am beside myself, one reason why being that Dad has booked to take Mum on holiday to Guernsey. He recently took her to stay in London and she "disappeared" during the night. Thankfully she was found in the hotel, in her nightwear. Dad says that he was "beside himself", mum remembered nothing of this. He was planning a holiday abroad, was advised by medical professionals not to do this, but has now booked Guernsey instead.
My Dad has relied on mum all his life due to a hearing issue. My 56 year old sister has a drink problem and other mental issues. Social services are going to visit them next week to assess need and establish what care they feel is needed. In a previous visit Dad and my sister told them that they were "doing fine" - it was only as a result of me pushing and to be honest crying, that a further visit has been arranged. I'm so worried that nothing will be done.
