My dad is in hospital and being sent to my house which is 100 miles away from him for practical reasons as I'm not working and my mum too frail and ill to do it . my siblings not able too for health reasons etc. I'm single mum with 2 children still at home. My daughter 11 who has adhd and autism and my son 26 who has down syndrome. My dad coming here next week but I'm struggling to sort house out for space for Hospital bed and hoist etc. I've got a new kitchen in boxes in my spare living room as my dad was going to help me fit it but that obviously not happening now. I've had a quote for £6000 to fit so I can get it out of the way but to be honest I haven't got that sort of money. The savings I did have, I had to put towards getting my dad home from spain with a private ambulance. I just feel I'm loaded with everything. Of course I want my dad here as I know it is the best option but I'm burying my head knowing all the equipment will just land at my house and then what?? I know no one can help me but I'm crying my heart out inside as there are so many obstacles. One of which my children at home reluctant about their grandad coming here but that's only because I'm so stressed about it. It hasn't stopped since my dad first became ill 2 month ago and I had to fly out to him to care for him in hospital and hotel with my youngest. I'm just looking for practical suggestions as I haven't even come to terms with him being palliative. Please help!!
