Hi, my son Steve is due to be discharged from his neuro rehab centre in 4 weeks time. He is 33 years old, wheelchair bound and unable to speak but understands everything that is said and happens around him. He can beat me at connect 4, loves watching films and has a great sense of humour. He is always so laid back and easy going with no behaviour problems at all. He has made good progress so far but he still has a way to go yet. All the nurses love him. I am struggling to find a nursing home in Somerset that has other young residents, they all seem to be primarily if not totally for elderly dementia patients. Please can anyone suggest anywhere that may be suitable. It needs to be somewhere that will help him constantly progress rather than just be a place where he will sit by himself all day with no encouraging interaction. It has taken me a long time to come to terms with him actually going into a nursing home rather than coming come and having home care, I'm still not really convinced I'm doing the right thing. Any advice very welcome.
