80 year old neighbour Parkinson's patient, total hip replacement before Xmas - lost most of his cognitive function and sent home into the care of his 91 year old wife.
Carers in the morning - no help with physio or toileting. Sitting in a chair hallucinating and getting pressure ulcers on his sacrum.
