My 86 year old Dad is currently in a Rehabilitation Treatment Centre after being in hospital for 2 weeks with a chest infection due to aspiration (we think).
It’s now become evident that he needs 24 x 7 care and my Mum can no longer cope with him alone at home - even with carers. We have the battle ahead of us with Social Services who will no doubt want to send him home with a care package of 4 x daily carers.
Does anyone have any advice on how to battle Social Services? And also if anyone has any recommendations for care homes in Northamptonshire (Kettering or Wellingborough esp), please let me know!
My Dad has Parkinson’s, Vascular Dementia, Prostate Cancer, Breathlessness, Atrial Fibrillation and a hernia!
Thanks in advance
