My dad has been in a nursing home for 2 years. Results of a stroke. In those 2 years the nursing home has lost his watch twice, broken his reclining chair, lost his glasses twice and misplaced his hearing aids for a week and now lost his left hearing aid.
My siblings and I have been very patient with them during all of this.
Right now in order to get his hearing aid replaced I have to call the local VA and make another appointment for dad to have his hearing checked so he can get another pair of hearing aids.
We have talked to the director, asst. director, director of nursing and social worker about all of these losses. Nothing seems to help.
I need suggestions on what else we can try or do to help the situation. The answer they give us is from the nursing home is "We have a lot of new people working" and sometimes they are not careful.
I have thought about moving them to another nursing home but the others are not rated very well.
