Sorry I haven't replied for so long- life has been very busy. My husband is now in the care home permanently as he is doubly incontinent and can't do very much for himself. He actually needs two people to help him do anything and the social worker says it would be dangerous for one person (me) to do...
D is still in the care home. He is not well enough to come home as yet, and no care package has been worked out as yet. His eating is rather erratic - some days he eats quite well - for him - others he refuses to eat at all. The psychiatrist has him on mirtazapine - an antidepressant which encourage...
D is now in a care home and is quite settled there. He was transferred to an assessment bed there a couple of weeks ago, which meant he was still under the care of the hospital, but not in the hospital itself. For those two weeks we had window visits only - the window was opened slightly and the car...
He was taken in last Friday by ambulance, having lost a lot of blood and weight and with low blood sugars. He was diagnosed with a duodenal ulcer, for which he was treated, but the hospital's main concern has been his refusal to eat or take his meds. Some days he complies with his treatment regime, ...
M is getting help with housing and employment. That's all I have time to write at the moment.

Unfortunately his employers and fellow employees have no understanding of autism, nor want to know how they can get the best work out of him. He is frequently sent outside for shouting - as advised...
Hi Matt, Welcome to the forum. This has been a difficult time of change for all your family. You have my every sympathy as my husband had a stroke and subsequent aphasia last July. Thankfully he doesn't have any of the physical side effects usually associated with a stroke, but it has affected his b...
Hello Jane, welcome to the forum. Your son's social worker sounds like the social worker who visited us after my husband had a stroke and said that because he didn't want a social worker, she wouldn't be visiting again as he was the one she was allocated to. I was interested in your comment about wh...
Hello Peter, Welcome to the forum. My husband had a stroke last July. There were no physical effects from the stroke and he was only kept in hospital for 4 days, but he has aphasia now, so I can sympathise with you about the speech problems. It is like a time of bereavement for both you and her, but...
