A few months ago the care home stopped Dad from smoking as it made him giddy and they did it for his weak heart to. That was fine, and I said its good cause smoking no good anyway. Dad was fine with this. Recently the hospital have cut down Dads pain killers since his hip operation, I dont know if thats a good idea really. And care home dont agree either with hospital on this. The care home used to give my Dad a small glass of whiskey every so often as that's his favourite drink, and his pleasure, they try to give people something as to what they like. Dad would say to them, Id like a glass of whiskey, so they would give this but water it down a lot. Like on his birthdays and Xmas etc. Now the hospital told the care home they cant give him whiskey or any alcohol no more cause of the meds he is on. So of course when the care home told Dad he cant have whiskey no more, Dad remained in his room all day long and would not get out of bed or have a wash or nothing and simply refused and cursed the hospital for taking his whiskey away. Its like the hospital have taken away his pleasures and pain killers really. Do you think the hospital are being harsh cause now my Dad has nothing? Or do you think hospital doing the right thing to protect him from harm with meds and whiskey? There is a two way street opinion here really. My Dad is coming to the end of his life so maybe he should be able to have some pleasures before his time comes. Or go without to maintain what little health he has left? I can understand why he has had enough though because any of us would be really fed up, if all our pleasures was taken away from us. Unfortunately for Dad, his was smoking and drinking. What do you think then?
