    I'm unsure how to handle this.

    I had a call today from Mum's care home. They said that she's lost 7Kg in the last month. My Dad is her next of kin but couldn't hear what he was being told. When I called him he said I'm not surprised they don't feed her. :-( I'm really concerned. The care home called the GP and...

    I'm unsure how to handle this.

    Mum used to love pineapple. I remember this because I was never all that keen. I like it now though. Thank you. So far as I know she's not been on any anti-biotics. Dad's very specific with the care home that he doesn't want my sister involved or me - just him. But usually he tells me (and...

    I'm unsure how to handle this.

    Yesterday she wouldn't eat her dinner and as I say she's looking very frail now. Perhaps the yoghourt is a good idea but it was something she never really liked. :) It's definitely worth a try though. Thank you for your support.

    DST meeting? Looking at CHC funding

    I don't know anymore whether I'm upset or angry

    I've spent almost all day dealing with my mum. Today she had her hip replaced because the consultant said her hip wouldn't heal. I spent some time with the respite care home trying to work out how this happened. There's also Safeguarding to get though now as well.

    I don't know anymore whether I'm upset or angry

    My mum lives at home with my dad. She has CHC for her dementia. It took and unbelievable effort to convince my dad into allowing my mum to go into respite so that he could have a holiday. Last night my mum fractured her hip in the respite care home :-( They don't know how this happened at the...
