Just a quick update on my dad. Having been approved for CHC Fasttrack funding a week or so ago - and having been in hospital for 3 weeks - we are now unable to find a nursing home willing to take him.
He is considered a fall risk and, after assessing him, don't believe that they can offer enough care.
Meanwhile he sits in hospital, taking up a hospital bed in a less-than-ideal environment for someone in the palliative care stage of the illness.
I would have thought that nursing homes would be falling over themselves (no pun intended) to receive the guaranteed income from a CHC patient.
I am consistently astonished by how difficult it is to organise care arrangements for my dad as his illness has progressed.
Then I saw this : news.sky.com/story/more-tha...
Anyway - rant over.
Thanks for reading
