Just want to get a few things clear in my mind for our impending chc review
As Dad is now in a nursing home they will take control of this review unless we think it necessary to be there.....I'm not entirely sure that our input at this review would be a good thing.....I need to be mindful of the fact that Dad is coming up to 5 months of being in his new home and is being well cared for and therefore appreciate that the nurses and carers now understand him and his needs more, i.e. We no longer do the caring, so they know this side of things very well
I have ensured the home are aware of all the facts (some of which I probably don't need to remind them of, but have) i.e. Bed bound, has no movement apart from very slight hand/arm movement, risk of bed sores, confused, finds it difficult to converse and make himself understood, hallucinates regularly, unable to feed himself, risk of chocking and aspiration, all medications listed etc etc
At present we don't have a date for the review and I won't be reminding chc! But being prepared in my mind is necessary!!
I am all too well aware that chc can be removed and want to be ready for this possibility!
Any tips you can share on how to try and ensure the chc continues would be very much appreciated!!
