Hi everyone, I am new to this but am fuming about the way my nan and grandad are being treated. My nan does everything for my grandad because the doctors just want to put him in a home and as a family we want to look after him ourselves. A few years back when my grandad wasnt so bad he was given a barrier type thing to stop him falling out of bed, at the time he was still mobile and said he felt trapped so my nan sent it back to the nhs, now he cant walk, talk eat properly and falls unless you watch him constantly, which my nan does religioulsy. However the last few months my grandad has started to fall out of bed and last night was a bad one ( my nan has to sleep sometimes) and he has bruised all of his face, my nan has called the health people this morning and has been told that they wont give her the barrier back as he has gone too far and might try and climb over it, in the same breath they also wont install a stairlift for the same reason, why wont anyone help them??? Apologies for the rant. Has anyone else experienced the same problem with climbing over the barrier? If not I will buy them one myself
