misidawnrn Posted March 8, 2012 Share Posted March 8, 2012 My dad is moving back home to his own house today which is a good thing. I have worked very hard over the last week to get him homehealth approved from the V.A. (veteran's affairs), randomly picked one of 3 agencies that provide home services, etc. I have let DD do her own work as already written in my planner and haven't had time to check it and thankfully she has been a big helper and just getting it done. Now, I have to work the next 4 days, 12 hour shifts, which is why I have spent HOURS on the phone getting it lined up. It was supposed to be at my home and dad wants to go home...more power to him. Well now 1. Home health won't come until his hoyer lift gets here because we told them he may need it to get in and out of shower. Mind you, we have been transferring well without it at my house with just me for 7 days! Last night and this morning he did almost the whole transfer alone with just me guiding him by his pants. HH won't listen to that as they have a hoyer lift mentioned, they want it. It is on order. (A hoyer lift buckels a person into a harness like seat and lifts mechanically for those who aren't familiar). 2. My dad is firing the HH agency because he didn't like the way to 2 women who came to interview him yesterday look. In his words "they don't look smart enough to be doing any interviews" :banghead: WTH? what does looks have anything to do with it? Steven Hawking isn't all that to look at and he is very smart so they say! My dad has always been like this...looks are everything, he wants the pretty waitress, the pretty nurse, etc...I have many, many issues related to this since I am NOT the prettiest sister. Anyways, I digress... 3. He is also mad that they won't furnish him with a stack of resumes to choose an aid from. No matter how many times I tell him, that isn't how healthcare works, he doesn't care. He wants to know if they are a single mom with one paycheck, working because they are going to school, yada yada yada... (and wants to know how cute they are! GAG!) Now, I have to work tomorrow, he is almost all moved out of my house except his bed and my BIL is coming in a few minutes to get that and he has NOBODY to get him up or put him to bed this weekend or ever for that matter!!! I told him I give up. I will miss work tomorrow (at the tune of 1/4 of my paycheck since I only work 4 days a paycheck!) to get him up but after that he is on his own. I gave him the numbers of the other 2 HH agencies and the caseworker from the VA that approves his hours and he can figure it out! OK, rant over!
