My mum is in an expensive EMI residential/nursing unit. My sister and I both live outside of the UK so get to see her about every two months. She can walk, feed herself, talks to us after a fashion on the phone, likes to go for drives with us when we visit, and we can normally take her into a pub for lunch with no difficulties. She can be aggressive both verbally and physically but the Care Home have managed that with medication and how they handle her.
My sister and I knew she visited and lay down on other people's beds, and as the doors are all left open it's to be expected, we think. We have just been told that she was found in a man's bedroom by the man's daughter, she was naked, man wasn't in room but obviously daughter was upset.
Care Home have said they want to move her "upstairs" which is mainly EMI nursing and people are much worse physically than Mum.
My question is, should the home be watching her more closely and preventing her from visiting other's rooms and undressing?
What do you all think? Have to talk to the Care Manager tomorrow and am trying to get a sense of how far I should fight for Mum to stay downstairs with more monitoring (given what we're paying!!!). Cheerio. Sue
