Dad entered NH last January after a bout with pneumonia; worked really hard and brought him home in August. He didn’t keep up with his therapy and developed pneumonia again after 3 weeks home, went to ER and now back in NH. The Therapist has indicated to Dad that they will need to discharge him in 3 weeks because he has reached his best level. He has interpreted that as he’s being “discharged” and can go home but that is not the case. I have talked with the NH and they suggested that it’s time to have the talk with Dad about him needing to stay there because it would be unsafe for him to come home. Mom and I have been telling him that "when the DR. released him," he can come home. Mom can’t help with his care and is in agreement that Dad is very well taken care of at the NH and needs to stay. I’m reluctant to have this talk because I don’t want him to give up or become angry. Can anyone help with giving me ideas on how to approach this with Dad? Should I talk with his Dr. about this? I have DPOA for both Dad and Mom.
