So, my daughter who has a 2 year old, husband is an hourly worker, calls tonight.
Backstory, her DH'S grandfather, with dementia, lives alone. Refuses care. Goes to senior center. Son moved recently out of state, offered to move his father with him. Elder refused, stated he was going to move his girlfriend from Cuba to NY.
So, GF falls, hurts shoulder Doc says just bruised. GF goes home. Neighbor calls my SIL, says GF can't care for self. SIL goes over, helps him undress for bed.
My daughter gets a call tonight from her FIL. States that his father has broken arm, someone needs to go to ER to care for his father.
My take is that if no one shows up at ER, hospital will determine if GF is safe to return home with no care. And will hopefully set in place a care plan/home healthcare. He is clearly NOT okay on own.
I have advised daughter and SIL to be in touch with hospital by phone, but to refuse to show up, as they have obligations that supercede care of GF.
