Getting a pd sufferer back to the uk


#1

Hi ! I joined the forum a while ago but up until now have not found out how to post
My husband, aged 85 and I live in France. His doctor recommends a care home as he has difficulty walking, with comprehension, speaking, etc and is on a protein liquid only diet and losing weight fast. He would prefer to be in a care home in the UK as he cannot speak French. I have researched and found a lovely one in UK but cannot figure out how to get him back …any ideas > Flying would be too stressful and I could not drive back …desperate for him ! Thanks for any advice !
