Our primary live-in carer has decided that she cannot cope with OH's worsening condition as she fears for her back. I am looking for a replacement via the agency (which is very inefficient - but affordable). She says he now needs two people for transfers.
They have had to reduce his PD meds because they were making him so paranoid, especially during the night. This is why he is worse physically.
It is a toss-up with carers (and me!) having to be up half the night with him fearful he is being poisoned; or carers having to cope alone with transfers and all the care tasks when he is so stiff and immobile. Neither encourages a carer to stay.
DD 1 says he needs to be in a home now, but that would break his heart. DD2 cannot bear the idea of that. And DD 3 is neutral on the subject.
What really annoys me is that the health authority have refused him continuing care funding because he is too easy to look after! Hmmmm.
