Just spoke to the social worker at the hospital. He said that as mum was moved to another ward last week, the new ward updated the health care assessment and it has tipped mum over into needing another assessment for continuous care. He said this means that Someone will have to come in from outside ( PCT) and do another assessment. If she meets this criteria, it means that all her care and nursing care costs will be met by the nhs. This means that she will get more money which means a better choice of home. However, he is not convinced she does meet this criteria. This all makesmthe process longer which will not bother my brother as it means he has longer at home before he has to move. Social worker said I should ask to speak to dr nidu to get a clearer explanation of the form of dimentia mum has.
