Just to let you all know we finally got to the care home this week. It was really nice. They had lots of things we didn;t expect. One to one care that the we don;t have to pay for or provide!!!!!!!!!!! They have other sight impared residence so it was lovely to see things like a tamberine and sand turning thing outside their room so they knew which one was theirs - of course our wee fellow could benifit from a littel help like that to find his room too! They had a lovely sensory room and when we told them he used an I pod for music the lady in charge said I am sorry we don;t have a docking station for one of those - " oh but we can always buy one!!!!!!!" - like WOW!!!!!!!!! We said yes to the centre and are able to get short restbite for a long weekend every month. However they do do full time res care but that is for another fight later on. We will have tog et the paper work sorted. OMG they even have kitty cats roaming the place for everyone to pet. How cool is that !!!!! none of this crazy can;t have this or that from the health and safety brigade!!!! They used to have a dog but two of the residence fought over it and nearly killed the poor thing so apparently they settled for cats cause they have more sence to run and hide when the petting sessions get too enthusiastic!
I am happy because we are one more step in a good direction.
- ok I still cried only because this is the right place opposed to crying because we couldn;t find the right place???? I know I am crazy! Oesdog
