I got really annoyed today with the re habilation nurse that came in!
I was trying to explain the difficulties dad has in rising from chair and even worse from bed!
We showed her what happens and in fact dad fell backwards (luckily on the bed) she said she doesn't think a hoist will help and would also be too traumatic for dad! So I asked what would work? Her reply just keep doing what your doing!!
Eventually she offered a hoist and mum n dad declined this (probably cos she put them off)
I'm just sick of feeling there's no help out there!
If you have savings of over 23k your screwed! What's the answer? Give your savings to someone else?? I'm thinking that might be the answer.........
I totally value everyone's advice on here just wish there was more help available! I'm getting so angry with occ health, social services and the neuro team because to be honest they just don't seem to understand of offer enough help!!
Moan over, feel better for writing it down
