So we had a Neuro team nurse visit with my parents at home last week.
They have made referrals to the district nurse, OT, speech and language therapist and dietician and are going to liaise with the GP to stop some of his medication - things like blood pressure tablets and statins. They dont think these are necessary as he's barely eating and his blood pressure is low.
They made some recommendations about equipment for him at home but didn't really have anything to add about his eating issues.
They are also arranging for a HCA to visit every 3 weeks to monitor my dad's condition.
They had a separate conversation with me where I pressed them for an opinion on my dad - they said that his condition was now advanced stage.
I asked their opinions about a PEG and they said that he might not meet the criteria. Does anyone know what the qualifying criteria are?
All in all the visit was useful in that we are having his living situation looked at and hopefully improved but we are all still really concerned about his eating.
