Has anybody in Australia had a happy experience when placing their PSP sufferer in out of home respite? My husband has just gone into an aged care facility for 2 weeks so that I can have a break but I am absolutely appalled at the way they are handling him. Seems to be a 'one size treatment fits all' mentality in there. My husband was continent and ambulatory on admission, but I am afraid that when he comes home he will be just the opposite on both scores. It is going to happen soon enough anyway, so surely the aim should be to maintain these functions as long as possible. Do any of the people running these 'care' facilities actually 'get' PSP???
