    thanks all.

    FIL has an angiogram scheduled for wednesday, so we will see how he goes, and what exactly is going to happen, and make some decisions after that.

    If they decide that he is ok, and will change medication then we will arrange for some home care while we are away etc - or arrange for him to stay with my parents for a few weeks (not sure if he will though)

    If he needs a stent or something more, we may end up delaying or cancelling our trip.

    Have to see how we go

    Would he go to respite in an aged care home? If he has been assessed by ACAT (Aged Care Assessment Team) CRCC might be able to find a place for him to stay for the time you are away. That would cost you approx $46/day (plus extra service charges)

    It's worth contacting local aged care and/or assisted living communities, almost all have care in the home options.

    its unlikely that he would agree to go ...

    he actually doesnt really want any help or care - but will probably accept it if its the only way we will still go, and if its in his own home.

    He has the money, and we wont have time to get an assessment between wednesday when we find out what we need to do, and friday when DH and I are due to leave ...

    so we will find out on wednesday, then if its all generally ok he just needs a bit of help then we will arrange that and still go.

    Not sure of its been mentioned yet but I am pretty sure silverchain do home care. My Nana has a cleaner I think was organized through them and my mum also had some home care done after a surgery for longer than usual care that I think was also through them.
