Imminent discharge from hospital!
Hi everyone. Things have progressed really well for my dad and he is now able to hold conversations, do all his personal care, write, read (although limited attention span) and navigate his way around the hospital. He has had several home visits including two overnight stays, with family members in attendance. The hospital are now talking about his discharge, but feel that home support is necessary as his wife is 80. Dad's short term menory is still affected and he has some difficulty remembering names although this is improving. The problem is that both he and his wife are resistant to any outside support and don't feel they need it. We have got headway involved but dad and his wife feel they are not necessary too. We have a meeting soon with the doctors and I feel sure they will insist on some home care. How do I help my father accept this. He is 70 and had a fall two months ago resulting in tbi. Thanks
