Granpa was discharged 2 weeks ago and safely arrived home. Thank you for all your advice and kind words.
Granpa was again admitted few days ago for Pneumonia, with the ACAT scheduled for an assessment this coming Friday.
I believe it was the hospital social worker's kind referral for this assessment to come so quick.
Whilst gramps being looked after by the hospital medical team, i still want the social side of it i.e. ACAT & Nursing Home to still be under way.
In our (family) opinion (after a long thoughts and discussion over discussion), nursing home is the most viable and best option for both Granpa and fam.
Apology for the long fill, but the question that I have, if anyone may experienced this in the past/recently even perhaps social worker:
- For me to still have the Assessment done and push for nursing home solution, do I make the call to ACAT, hospital social worker or both?
I had a thought of having the assessment to relocate to the hospital however I'm not entirely sure if ACAT will assess 'not the best day' gramps.
