I am sorry to ask such a basic question but does your father know what he is doing?
Is this the only problem or are ther other issues?
Please bear with me today, I am on and offline (Sunday things to do)
He knows what he is doing from time to time, which goes with his dementure.
Sometimes he really does not know what he is doing. I understand that he is creating a fire risk with his smoking, and he did, on two occasions urinate in the drawing room in the home in front of all of the other residents!!
However, going back to the point that they said that they could cope with him prior to this, I cannot see why, they are pressuring me to move him quickly, and can they legally do so?
I will move him, but it takes time to look at other suitable homes, check them, make sure they have space etc.
I do not want to be rushed and pressurised into action.
Can they force me to rush?
Hi, any more news on my answer to your question?
I am sorry to have to tell you that they can.
The residential home that he is in is in essence boarding house /guesthouse/hotel, and simply because the Bill is being paid does not give anyone the right to continue to stay there if they breach the rules.
I think they have probably gritted their teeth and bit the bullet up till now , but this is the final straw and it is brought everything else to a head .
The notice period may be specified in the initial contract or it may not. Do please check. If there is no notice periodspecified, then it is likely to be seven days, but in any event, it is what hasto be reasonable in the circumstances.
I think they're probably going to be moreunderstanding with regard to the timescale if you accept the situation and tellthem that you will make other arrangements. I think however, you are only going toget weeks at best and not months. The situation of course, will onlydeteriorate and will not get better so you are probably only faced with theinevitable.
I appreciate that this is probably not theanswer you wanted but there is no point in me misleading you.
Can I help further? Please bear with me today because I will be online and off-line.
