Hi Some have you may have seen my thread about my dad being in hospital. I'll just put a bit background if you haven't. Dad has moderate AD. He was forgetful but not really confused except at night. He lived at home and managed ok in the day but going out at night was a problem. Since September ish I have had a night sitter and a homehelp to come for an hour in the day. Dad has always been in very good physical health and extremely physically fit. On 2nd Feb he was hit by a car and broke lower leg (surgery and metal bar put in) and ribs and hurt his shoulder. He has also fallen whilst in hospital and hurt his back and has a staph infection in surgery wound. So we are 21 days after the accident and he still has an infection, sore shoulder, ribs and back. But have had a call from the social worker today to tell me that Dad wont to walk unaided again (physio told him this) and he needs EMI nursing 24 hour care. I have to say to tell me this in the middle of my working day was rather thoughtful too. I am going to have to toughen as I find so many people surrounding this situation really insensitive. I personally think this is a really unfair assessment to make when my dad is in so much pain, has an infection and been in 3 different wards. He also on strong painkillers including orimorph. I asked the social worker if we could wait to see if his mobility improves. But it seems as soon as the infection heals my dad will be medically fit to leave and will have to go to nursing EMI unit. And he wanted to know which places I had in mind. What choices if any do i have here?
