The meeting about father's care was quite clear. He needs to go to a nursing home with medical care available 24 hours a day. I am currently researching (uncle's home is not suitable).
Father believes he will be fine to get home by Christmas. I am not arguing, but it will take a great deal of work and luck and poor father is getting tired very quickly. I think it is more about getting back to being active and independent rather than coming back to a particular space.
He is still flirting with the nurses. He is still father. That's the important thing.
