Lots are going through the CHC hoops at the moment. We are just about to get on that merry-go-round! Just a thought, perhaps we all ought to monitor the people coming, their rank and how long they stay. To judge what, just the assessing is costing the NHS. I dread to think what the answer is going to be!
Need advise! S is taking forever to eat his food now, also struggling with drinking. Two hours to eat his evening meal is the norm. His appetite is fine, clears his plate. Only has a few issues with swallowing, with liquids. Have got special knives and fork, but that, while helping him, is not speeding things up. It seems to lack of attention. I tried turning the T V off, (I know, naughty, but it's what we do!) but that meant, I had to just sit for hours, with nothing to do! Is this the time to start cutting his food? He says no, it's almost as if he has forgotten what to do,( there's a surprise!). But how do I get around this. Certainly, no incentive to cook food, he never eats it hot! Yet another vicious circle to try and get of!!!
Lots of love
