Thread: care homes with one to one care

    care homes with one to one care

    My father has been in a dementia care home for 3 years. He has recently had several falls. He is unsteady on his feet but still able to walk.
    The manager of the home has intimated that he may ask my father to leave because the home cannot offer the level of one to one support that he feels my father needs.
    My father is settled in the home and a move will be very upsetting for him. He is privately funded. I have not been able to find a care home that provides one to one 24 hour care. Has anyone any experience of this?

    I don't know of any nursing homes, even with private pay, that provide 1:1 care. You may want to consider taking him into your own home and hiring caregivers for him instead. The cost would probably be less. I find it strange that an Alzheimer's unit would want to kick someone out who has some of the common problems of Alheimer's, but if you are insisting they provide 1:1 care, that could be the reason.
