They think I complain too much. All I care about is that Dad and the other residents at the home are taken care of with dignity and respect. At $5000-plus a month, is that too much too ask?
Apparently it is.
So, tell me, how do I learn to not care when:
- his hair is sticking out in a million directions because it doesn't get combed
- they don't shave him below the chin
- they put oversized furniture in a common walkway that impedes wheelchairs and residents who use the hand rails to keep from falling
- staff is constantly changing so the residents are deprived of one of the most important things dementia patients need: stability
I could go on but you get my point.
When I emailed my concerns about that large hutch in the hallway, they couldn't be bothered to acknowledge my email. Obviously, they do not share my concerns.
So, which of the others is also not important to my father's well being or safety? Which of those should I *not* be complaining about? I'm serious. Tell me. Because obviously I don't know: I think they're *all* important, to my Dad and to every other resident that is affected.
But . . . they think I complain too much.
