Finding Assistive Living Or Home Sharing W/a Celia
0

3 posts in this topic

We have been trying to find assistive living for my celiac dad in central California. Many of the assistive living facilities are not able to accomadate my dad's diet due to the mass quantity of meals prepared for the 50+ people.

My dad would love to find an assistive living facility that can accomadate his diet.

Alternative to this would be finding someone that would like to either share their home or he could share his large home w/ another celiac senior that needs 24 hour caregovers.

Am I the only one going thru this problem of finding assistive living for a slightly frail celiac senior? It is starting to wear us and him down.

It is very sad that the options for a older adult with celiac are so slim. We recently had to place my great grandma (not celiac) into a assisted living facility. I have seen what they eat there, everything is a caserole or has bread, or is breaded. I couldn't imagine putting a person with celiac disease into assisted living and having them be "safe" from contamination.

Have you looked into a private nurse or home health care? Many places offer that service. The person comes in and does some light cooking and cleaning. There are even 24 hour care nurses that pretty much live with the patient. Medicare even pays for some of this if the person is elligible.

Maybe you can start your own gluten free rest home ;)

Just me thinking here. If celiac is recognized with the american disabilties act? I think that is what it is called. And a assisted living place gets any federal funding. Wouldnt they have to provide him the food he needs for his health????

I could be way off, not sure if they recieve any fed. funding like schools and hospitals, but I would think some do.

Plus I know my dad was in a place here in texas, he had small fridge and micro in his room cause well he just flat out refused their made food.So I would make it refridgerate it and he would microwave it.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
