I have a friend who i have been talking to and helping with different things including over tje years. Weird family his wife devorced him stayed in tje house and moved her new husband and no contributions, they have now moved out.
Friend is 87 and lives alone aside from his daughters dogs.
2weeks ago last saturday he came to my house (we live on the same street) asking me to contact his daughter saying he felt unwell and couldn't see very well. I sent him jome with my daughter as i was worried for him. His daughter was on holiday.
I did an errand i was just about to go on when he arrived on my return myself a dd1 went to see how he was. To cut a long storey short we ended up getting him medical help. He had been having stroke.
He's been in hospital for 2 weeks and came out on friday, now its constant messages from his daughter, she has been staying with him. He won"t let the carers help him. Also the carers won't supervise all his meds as it can't go in a dosset box.
His shower is over the bath he has no grab rails.
I feel hes at risk his daughter only visits usually when she wants money i waant to make sure hes safe and has what he needs but don't want to put myself in a predicament or being held resposible if anything goes wrong. I do not think the daughter is. Capable of sorting for him (all her 5 children have been taken into care) i believe i need to speak to social services although i have suggested she does this for support. What do people think
