Thanks lovely waisters. Sadly nan's infection is only very recent (and now treated) but the dementia has been going on a lot longer. They're planning to get someone to pop in a couple of times a day, she can still do most things but needs reminding to have a wash and take her tablets etc. Fortunately she lives with one of her b
rothers - but she never did listen to him and clearly isn't about to start now!
Goodness Podds, you've had an earthquake?! Crikey!!
((((sluggy and family)))))
Could I request a few vibes for my nan please? She's finally been diagnosed with dementia, and a week or two ago landed up in hospital, they thought with some kind of infection. Just had an email from my dad saying she's still there, and 'the hospital want the bed back but they are still waiting for the social worker to assess her'
Really, it makes me SO CROSS - the hospital may well want the bed back, but what on earth is the use of telling the patient and family that?! I mean, is my nan just having so much damn fun in there that she never wants to go home again?! I very much doubt it. I'm sure everyone would prefer it if she went home. Grr.
