My father is 66 and suffers from Parkinson's with associated dementia. His symptoms have rapidly deteriorated over the past 18 months. He has been in a care home since December 2012. The standard of care he has received has varied considerably over this time and we have had to make lots of complaints about his care including getting his medication on time and basic needs such as toileting, feeding and keeping him mobile. We have made these complaints to the care staff, the home manager and his social worker and other professionals like his CPN. I work full time so cannot be at the home every day but my step mother visits at least twice a day. Most if the time it is my step mother complaining to the staff, the care home seem to have taken offence that she complains and are saying that they won't tolerate her behaviour towards them. I have tried to reason with them and get them to see why she gets so upset and behaves towards them in the way she does.
The care home have now given us 28 days notice to find another place for my father to go to after threatening us with this action on a number of occasions previously. Unfortunately I cannot find any care homes with either vacancies or that don't require top up fees in the local area. Social services are well aware of the situation and I was told by the social worker that they would not cover the top up fees as in her words " he's in a care hind that can meet his needs" but he's being forced out if this home.
Please can anyone help me.
