An update to my last question, thanks for the replies. I need some help, my Dad is 71 now, has been in Preston Hospital on the Urology ward for a month now having had lots of set backs. Due to the care needed 24/7 Peg feeding, catheter, mobility, urine infection recently and knowing that My father is in the advanced stages of PSP. We has a family have had an assessment for Continuing Health Care, which has been good news because Dad was the only person in that Hospital they have ever had with PSP. DAD still thinks he's coming home and my MUM will cope just like before he was admitted into Hospital. Mums a new person since dad's been in Hospital, not just surviving on 2 or 3 hours if lucky of sleep a night. Mum was worn out and fell in the garden a few times, No broken bones thank god. Its going to be hard to explain still speaks and expresses his thoughts and feelings by tensing up when questioned. Nursing Home is required now to meet dads care needs, any Replies or other people who have experienced such a hard decision would be very much appreciated. Honesty37xx
