I have written before about my father who is in and out of hospital, whilst I live over 100 miles away. He has two safeguarding measures against the Home and the hospital.
Apparently, the community diabetic nurse doesn't think the Home is managing his diabetes well and so has instigated dad be moved; I know she would like me to move him nearer to me but I am not well enough nor do I have the professional support to do this at this time. I have never thought this was in dad's best interests either but maybe I am wrong. I am making myself more unwell with all that is going on and now don't know what to think. How do I know that another Home will be able to manage dad any better. The Home where he is has deteriorated over the 23 months he has been there but was very good, I felt, when I first put him there.
I'm feeling upset and in a muddle as to what happens now. Dad is self-funding so everything has been left to me. There is a social worker involved due to the safeguarding measure but that will be only temporary.
