So having been told that dad is going to die - but not being told when - I have to decide whether to move dad back to his nursing home. The hospital and doctors seem to be pushing for this to happen even though I have concerns about dad being moved when he is frail and coming to the end of his life. He is currently on a pain patch (Butran?) and not much else, although has anticipatory medicines available. The Nursing Home is at least half an hour away from the hospital where dad is presently. It would be better for us as nearer to our home but is this best for dad in his present state? I just don't know. Th e Nursing Home say they can look after dad at this time but dad isn't eating or drinking so I don't think he has long left. Of course, fast tracked CHC funding has kicked in which is hardly relevant at this late stage!
