I've been waiting for another appointment to arrive for my OH who has Alzheimer's. I've previously asked them to advise me by telephone as well as sending out the appt by post to my OH as I've explained to them he's got an obsession with the post & unless anything is addressed to me, I seldom see it. So I wouldn't know when an appt was made & therefore I wouldn't be able to remind him of it which would result in missed appointment.
Not unsurprisingly because of Alzheimer's he has a poor memory.
They rang this morning & spoke to my OH & gave him the details of his next appt later this month. Luckily I was next to him & was able to take note of the details as he repeated them.
Am I being unreasonable to think that a clinic regularly seeing Alzheimer patients would think it ok to rely on giving the details to the patient himself, instead of asking to speak to me? Especially as they'd been alerted to the fact that there could be a problem with that.
