Mary Pleased you have solved the problem. Fingers crossed. This will sound very harsh, but certainly not meant. Respite in my opinion will be the best option next time. It will ease you into the time when a home may be your only option. In all probability it will happen. Do hope you can enjoy your t...
Irene I absolutely agree that its your home, not a care home. However I have to tell staff at times at hubbys nursing home, for example. that although he can eat his food without help, he cannot manage a yoghurt pot, as he only has the use of one hand. I have to request they tip into a pudding dish,...
Mary One size doesn't fit all with dementia sufferer's. I can definitely see that with the residents at my hubby's nursing home. I sometimes feel I'm not doing enough, but the staff assure me they can see I do my utmost. You are too, from what you have stated. Dementia is a different world to ours. ...
Hi Gilly
That is sad that you feel you need to leave. I honestly don't think your situation pales into insignificance. Heart ache and upset is that, whatever the reason. The forum is a place to vent, for whatever reason. Consider staying with us.
Welcome to the forum Pat Sorry to hear your life is so frustrating. My husband is in a nursing home because of strokes and vascular dementia. Different circumstances to yours. However, does your husband seem to have memory problems? I'm wondering, if he has had a TIA ( mini stroke) which has caused ...
Mary. I'm sure the bank will come to a sensible arrangement. They won't take all of the pension as it will just cause more difficulties. Really, and I know it will be difficult, your fella should just be given cash now, and you deal with the rest, involving the card etc. Afraid it's another awful st...
My friend has had some very demanding phone calls, from supposedly HRMC. Obviously a scam. Im wondering if scam letters are sent out too. Maybe just telephone them directly with a general enquiry. I've never heard of letters sent out like that. ISAs , I believe it's 20thousand tax free any way. What...
Hi Anne The carers at my husband's nursing home don't mind either obviously as long as the relative is not Inthe way. I personally do not long to see my husband hoisted, or even on the stand aid. Distresses me, so I tell him I'm going to the loo myself or something like that. Having said that, he do...
Hubby no longer on the long term antibiotics. Today has been sad for me. He had the specialist check his swallowing. It has become worse. No longer can have biscuits or kit kats etc. He can have something like a milky way. No more toast, and no more of the rice crispies he chooses every morning with...
So sorry you have been knocked back. ((( Hugs)))
Wonder if it would be worth contacting your MP? Just to believe the OT on say so is ridiculous.
