My Father is in a Care Home in Grimsby with Alzheimers. He has been there there since 18th February where things had come to a head and he had gone wondering the previous evening and got himself lost, anyway he has been diagnosed just over 2 years. It is 180 mile round trip for me to visit Dad and is quite ardous as I have to go on my own too.
I have been looking into transferring my Dad to a Care Home near me, I haven't been able to visit him for 3 weeks now and feel so guilty about this , th e reason I haven't been is that I have low white blood cells which is making even more tired even with Fibro and M.E. if you can imagine that.
Well his Dr rang me this afternoon when I was asleep!!!
I did wake up and take the call, and he informed me that te Practice Nurse had visited Dad and that he had detiorated somewhat and they had decided to put him on Palliative Care and DNR with the Care Home. DNR is do not ressuciate.
After the call I cried and cried and could not go back to sleep so I have come on here for a rant or whatever. I am so tired I cannot think straight I really don't know what to do now.
I called the Care Home to be told Dad was singing and dancing on the Kareoke!!!!!!!!
There will be another Best of Interest meeting soon, so I guess things will develope from there.
Thankyou for listening.
