I am my 82 yr old fathers legal guardian and primary caregiver. He has alzheimers. I am the youngest of 7 kids. Mom died 3 yrs ago. All the siblings live all over the country and world. I have a brother who lives 1 hr away, forget about help to a large degree.
Heres my problem. and question: My sibliings asked me, when dad is in the hospital, like a week ago with a heart issue. Would I trust them to relay the docs information back to me as well as the test results etc. if they where to come in and stay with dad.
Since I am wiht dad everyday take him to doc appts etc and know his health issues etc. Would I not be the best one to be with him at least he first day or two. to ensure the problems with dad are communicated directly from the caregiver? Who is the best person to communicate health issues to the docotrs. In a case where of a hospital ER occurance.
