Can anyone help me. My father was admitted to hospital and was fit for discharge on the 8th August. Early September diagnosed with bowel cancer, untreatable because of his age (85) and now NHS eviction proceedings have commenced, date set 4th December. I am advised by the ward doctor, unable to say what stage, as consultant notes, only four lines and don't give enough detail. Dad a bedblocker and asking to go into a care home but sadly in August didn't meet criteria. He's going down hill fast, loosing weight rapidly, just manages to shuffle along with a frame, laboured breathing, feels sick and not eating and unable to sleep for some unknown reason. Haven't seen him this week, as norovirus hit the ward and ward closed, although on Monday he underwent a proceedure to fit a stent, I believe.
NHS and PALS unable to say what will happen on eviction as first eviction case at the hospital but informed at the informal meeting, either hostel of B & B with no care package as he has refused to go home with a LA care package, as he is adament he is unable to look after himself and live at home.
Just don't know which way to turn or where to go for advice at this very emotional time.
