I went over to my aunt's house today, because her carer was worried by an alarm going off in the house, and wanted it sorted.
I was very surprised to find auntie at home, because she should have been at daycentre. Only later did I find that as it is a bank holiday, there is no day centre. Maybe I should have known, but no-one told me , and the carer never thought of it either.
So the carer got auntie ready for daycentre, and as the transport never arrived, auntie went out, walked round and round, looking for the daycentre (never found it). When I turned up, auntie had no lunch, and nothing in the house to make a sandwich with. She does not call anyone, as she cannot use the phone.
So we took auntie out, and got her some lunch. Her balance is not too good, she wanders about all over the pavement, and trips now and again.
Now I know she goes out sometimes and can see it is only a matter of time before she has another bad fall.How can I convince SS she is not safe to be left alone? She is so bad she does not even know where the fridge is in her own kitchen today. Any more ideas, you nice people?
